Queen Mary 2 (QM2)

Sail Date: March 2004
Destination: Other
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

All hipe and no delivery. This was the worst vacation I've gone on since I have been able to afford 4* or better hotels.

what was OK:

Decor - not bad but no better than voyager of sea or the new Celebrity ships. Toiletries & linens were good.

What was bad:

Service - NON existent, management has decided to train the staff on my dime. Also no where near enough staff for a ship with full occupancy.

Main dining room - Long wait to get food and 1/2 the time it arrived cold, people were served at different times. Main course meat dishes were ok but appetizers and fish were very so/so.

King's court - For breakfast & lunch you could not get a table and then when you did it was dirty. Up to 1/2 hr wait and you have to look for the table yourself. Old people who can barely walk had to carry trays. You also have to get your own drinks as they don't serve. For dinner service here was OK and the food was better than in the More main dining room.

Pools are very small, just a hole. The only nice one was in the spa.

7th deck promenade is the only place you can walk outside in evening (9-11pm) but they insist on cleaning the 12th deck and dirty water pours down on you.

Dinner- If you have not made reservation for King's court (a must always full) and you miss your sitting in the main dining room you cannot get anything to eat until 10:30pm when they put out a very limited buffet.

They ran out of lemons and lime on the 9th day. we were in port the previous day.

Music - none in the main dining room and in only one bar until after the 2nd sitting.

Deck chairs - no one to come around to ask you if you want a drink.

I think I will stop now. Less
