Fantastic Voyage: Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Cruise Review by Racer_Jim
Overall Member Rating
Embarkation: New York (Brooklyn, Red Hook)
Food on the QM2 is almost always available during the day and night. It is plentiful and there seem to be dishes for a range of palate. Libations are top notch and there is something appealing to every passenger. The staff of the QM2 is of the highest caliber from my perspective and I do mean every staff member from custodians to directors and the Captain. It was our experience that the staff members were so professional and so accommodating that guests wanted to interact with them.
The entire experience from July 6, 2014 through disembarkation on July 28th was an absolutely "fantastic voyage". Less
Cabin review: 5049
Ours was the perfect room for us. Mid-ship so that we barely felt the rocking of the boat. Far enough down the corridor to eliminate a lot of walk-past traffic but close enough to elevators.
Port and Shore Excursions
The "Snapshot of Hamburg" was exactly what the title describes. Guests have an opportunity to see and experience numerous parts of Hamburg, including the absolutely gorgeous "St. Michels Church". The people were so friendly and accommodating and all kinds of merchandise, souvenirs, and memorabilia was available and reasonably priced. Our departure from Hamburg was on the 10th anniversary of the QM2 coming to the city. As the QM2 was departing, it was accompanied by numerous boats and yachts that made our "send off" a memory for a life time. German well wishers waved and bid us farewell for miles and miles.
Decent cruise but NOT as good ...
It was great - but missing Tod...
