Save your money...: Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Cruise Review by Hocustravel
Overall Member Rating
Save your money...
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Brooklyn, Red Hook)
We did the five night cruise to Halifax and Boston just to see how we liked it before booking a much longer and much more expensive cruise later on. I'm glad we did since it was a real let down. This wasn't just our opinion. Most people I talked to on the ship were disappointed as well. This even includes one couple who had cruised with Cunard dozens of times. I'm not saying don't try it but just don't expect the quality of an Oceania, Celebrity, or Princess.
Em/Debarkation: Very quick and organized.
Food: Average at best.
Ship: Very elegant but a little worn.
Cabin: Very nice More size with "sheltered balcony". Nice bath. Very small desk top TV. Probably 32"
Entertainment: Very limited. Main shows were very amateur productions.
Keep in mind that this ship is an ocean liner and not intended to be just like a large cruise ship. This may appeal to you but for me it was boring compared to other cruse lines. Less
