Queen Mary 2 (QM2) - Eastern Caribbean

Sail Date: January 2005
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

The QM2 is quite a beautiful ship but that is where the good stuff ends. We waited 3 hours to board her, it was total confusion. Locals told us this has been like this from the beginning. I learned the average age of our cruise was 66, no wonder the ship was so quiet all day. If Cunard is going into the Caribbean market I feel it will have to liven up a bit. Also, the pools were very small, no fun and games pool side either. There are no changing tables anywhere & if you are disabled it is hard to locate a handicap toilet, they are not in the bathrooms. We didn't find the staff very friendly either.

We had room service for breakfast each morning & not once was the order 100% correct. In the Britannia dining room the food was excellent, but again, if you varied from the menu as written it got messed up. The Kings Court buffet area was not set up very well, each station was a bit different & therefore you had crowds milling around & again long lines. More

Our daughter was thrilled with their kid's program. She has a 14 month old but of course there were only 24 kids on the ship so it was sort of one on one.

Some areas of the ship were hard to find, like the disco. Sometimes on the elevators you had to go up or down a level to get around the dining room so you could get to your destination.

We had fun because 10 of us went but if we (hubby & I) were alone we would have been bored to death. We went on the Caribbean Princess in June & had a blast.

I suppose this Grand Dame of the seas was built for the rich & elderly, not families looking to have a fun time. Less
