First Cruise - Awesome experience on QM2

Sail Date: July 2014
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Brooklyn, Red Hook)

First cruise ever and I was awestruck.

Embarkation was very speedy - taxi to stateroom in 20 minutes; luggage arrived in the next 20.

Room was very clean and spacious enough - lots of closet space and hangers. Only electrical outlet is on desk in main cabin as is the hair dryer, which imagine would be a bit cumbersome if multiple folks sharing a cabin.

Food was very good. Kings Court buffet is not glamorous but I found it just fine for salads, light snacks and a quick light breakfast. Brittania was excellent especially considering how many were served. Todd English was very good. Dined their on July 4 expecting to go out on the deck after to watch the fireworks but Boston put on that show on July 3 due to Hurricane Arthur. Captain and crew did outstanding job in navigation; adjusting the schedule a bit and keeping us out of the heart of the storm.

The ship is excellent in rough seas; felt nothing more than some slight rolling. You will feel very More safe on this ship.

Excellent cabin steward - attentive but not overbearing. Found all other staff to be friendly and helpful. Entertainment (shows) were really excellent and I did not expect that. Lecture series also quite good.

The only negative has nothing to do with the cruise - loved the cruise but did not like the single supplement. All in all, I would definitely cruise on the QM2 again. Less
