Ship Facts: Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Deck Plans
Potholes and pitfalls galore

Lets face it the QM2 is too big and quite shabby in many areas.

Potholes are everywhere under the carpet in many corridors and public areas. Nowhere near a 5 star ship, I would rate it a 3.

The food is meagre served with a dismal face and in a rush, 3 orders were wrong in 4 days.

Cabin charge of $11.50 per person per day is a rip off as is the Cunard VAT of 15% on all booze which makes a pint of beer or larger £4 or $6, this is extortionate as duty free bulk purchases cost lest than 60p a pint. I know as I am a publican - remember they pay no duty or VAT on sales..

The cabin was tired and the sheets not changed in 4 days. The towels had stains and were not at all fluffy and quite hard.

The general standard of clientele has deteriorated over the years with formal nights still having slobs without a jacket and even trainers being worn-get a life. No dress code is enforced although blathered about in each daily newssheet.

The good bits are that she rode seas well and the iconic nature of a big liner still has some charisma.

The entertainment was just typical 2nd rate cruise rubbish with shouty singers and overloud backing bands.

The sane act appeared 3 times in 4 nights - yes unbelievable!!

Unless you get a cracking deal she is just not worth the money. QV is far superior at every level.
