Perhaps no ship currently at sea excites a lover of maritime history like the Queen Mary 2. The flagship of the Cunard line and successor to the much-missed QE2 does its best to echo the company's storied ...

Having saved and worked hard to do this transatlantic cruise both ways we were thoroughly disappointed with Cunard. The ship looks tired and as for 'formal' nights don't bother dressing up as the dress code was NOT adhered to, we often ... Read more

First my positive comments: The ship itself is great; spacious and comfortable. The ship's stabilisers were only used once during the 8 days and this was in Force 9 winds. The impact of the high seas was barely noticeable on board. ... Read more

Embarkation very slow in Southampton but much better in Brooklyn, New York. This was our 4th journey on QM2 making a return journey and it was as good as ever. Attentive staff, good food in the Britannia restaurant and King's Court; good ... Read more

Having spent a couple of past transatlantic voyages on the QM2, the first in 2005, this was a 21 day trip and a 5 day NY catch up for my 50th Birthday treat in the QM2's 11th year commencing 21st July. I was pleasantly surprised as this ... Read more

Okay, the QM2 is showing some age and the food isn't great, but still very good, but overall a nostalgic experience and I would do it again, (our 3rd time this time). There is nothing like it to leave New York aboard this ocean liner, (not ... Read more

Warning is will be quite long as I will have lots of time to kill – I will write day by day as we travel! To give the correct context we are men in our late 40's, from the UK and have cruised many times (about 40 I would guess). ... Read more

We sailed from Southampton July 2, docked at Liverpool for a bang-up July 4th celebration and then sailed for Halifax, Boston and NYC. Weather mostly calm. Stopped to inspect derelict two-masted boat found adrift, but apparently no one ... Read more

We've been on QM2 from NYC to Hamburg 21-30. June. Our 5th TA crossing and everytime when we read these negative reviews, we worry about how bad our Crossing will be. The ship seems to be falling apart, the personel overworked and ... Read more

I had great expectations of the Transatlantic crossing between Southampton and NYC, fueled by all the novels and historical accounts I read. I should have taken into account that he 19th and 20th centuries are long gone. After ... Read more

We have cruised many different cruise lines, but have never done a transatlantic. We took the QM2 home after a week in Europe. In all, it was a lovely, relaxing voyage. We stayed in an inside cabin, as that was the cheapest alternative and ... Read more

If it was not for the poor experience of embarking and disembarking for this first time surface Atlantic crossing was absolutely great. I realize that it is not all that easy to have many hundred people embark and disembark but it ... Read more

We've discovered over the years that the best way to cross the ocean is by ship. Comparing the QM2 with a cramped aluminum tube, and remembering that the QM2 includes lodging, food and entertainment for a week, it actually comes out ... Read more
