Just returned from the aforementioned cruise; our third on QM2. How service, food and entertainment have disintegrated in the last 9 months.Embarkation was a joke, nobody seemed able to do their job. They simply did not understand ... Read more

As two senior ladies we had always fancied the "Queens" experience so when attractive pricing was offered we took the opportunity. We arrived for embarkation at the suggested time( a good idea I feel) to find the crowd quite ... Read more

This was our 3rd time on QM2 as we enjoy the ship so much, we prefer the refined elegance and the ship itself more than the theme park gimmicks of other Lines, (I am a great fan of the tradition and romance of the great Lines of the past). ... Read more

We paid a huge sum for 18 nights in top Queens Grill class. I found very little in return from Cunard/Carnival. We were not shown to our cabin (we did not know this ship). Except for breakfast the food did not reflect the flowery ... Read more

We sailed 2 sectors on the world cruise in 2015. When an unbelievably cheap fare was offered for a trans--Pacific crossing we couldn't help ourselves. About 1,000 other Australians took up the offer and flew to Santiago to join Queen Mary ... Read more

We wanted to get away from our winter in Toronto! We had a balcony (partially covered) deck 4 aft but was good as we did have some rough weather. QM2 is definitely the best ship to be on when seas get rough! Even some of the staff who had ... Read more

Reading other reviews, it seems that cruisers can be very tribal, “we love P & O, nothing else compares” or “RC is the best by far”. We have written this review with a totally open mind and reported on what was ... Read more

The ship was beautiful and very clean, although it is definitely in need of some sprucing up. The crossing was very cold and very rough, so I stayed indoors. I did not find that there were a lot of activities - I am used to Royal ... Read more

The Queen Mary 2 is a lovely ship, beautifully run. Ours was a December passage; the Atlantic was rough, to put it mildly. The outer decks were rarely open. Having said that, the QM2 is so well built, that the high seas and strong ... Read more
