Ship Facts: Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Deck Plans
Sailing English Style on the QM2

We have mostly cruised on larger cruise ships that have much more activities and options ice skating, wall climbing, wave runners and large malls. We were repeatedly reminded by staff and fellow cruisers that the QM2 is not a "cruise" ship but rather an "ocean liner".

We did enjoy meeting people from all over the world -- with a strong representation from the UK. Everyone was VERY friendly and fun to be with.

The shows were good. We loved the comedian and the Nat King Cole impersonator but we thought that the dancers were not up to the same level as other cruises. We enjoyed the disco club nightly that had a great live band. Didn't care too much for the formal dancing in the main ballroom. There were MANY hired dancers that catered to the single ladies and formal dancers.

The food was good and nice variety. Formal afternoon tea was incredible.

Overall, this was much more formal and traditional than we have experienced in the past. The average age of our fellow cruisers was much older than we are -- and we're 63. I don't mean this to be a knock on the experience. We really enjoyed ourselves and were VERY fortunate to have 3 wonderful dining companions that quickly became friends -- who we still stay in contact.

PS: This ship is extremely accommodating for those with physical challenges.
