Ship Facts: Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Deck Plans
A touch of class!!!!
Four of us [myself/wife/son/daughter-in-law, travelled on Monday 23rd May last,and stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Express,in Southampton,because of the distance involved,over 250 miles..This allowed plenty of time,especially if anything went wrong....[but didn`t]. We made our way to BCP Cruise International carparking in the morning of 24th May,and they then tranferred us to Southampton dockside,where our cases were taken from the bus and thats all we saw of them until a couple of hours later,outside our cabins.....Embarkation looked impossible when we eventually arrived at the booking section,so many people, but the card we were given "L" was called not too long afterwards and we were then processed and given our QM identification

cards,which acted as "passports/credit cards" for the duration of our holiday period.the whole period of time from entering to actually being in our cabin took about an hour,including passing through Security,before allowed aboard. When we arrived at our cabin,and used the given card to enter,we were amazed at the interior, Enough storage space for three cases and a king sized bed, two seater[which would have acted as another double bed,small dressing table and a balcony [albeit with an "obstructed" lifeboat view-but nevertheless sufficient for our pleasure] After putting away some of our clothes,hunger and beihg of an investigative nature,the four of us went searching for dinner. The Kings Court on dect 7 was a hive if industry with all new passengers taking advantage of a wonderful spread and we were soon well fed. Because of a lot of passengers coming aboard at the same time,table space was at a premium,but suitable seating was soon found in one of the may available tables. We found details of our dining arrangements in our cabin and went looking for the restaurant..everything found to be fine,including the "Golden Lion" pub on deck two,the facilities on board the QM2 are unbelievable in that nothing was ever too much trouble for the staff at each location, a wonderful start to our cruise......Every evening our dinner table was served by two members of the crew and we were looked after very well by them for the 10 nights.[even to having a birthday cake-on 31st May-plus the birthday song by the serving staff] and at the end of the cruise,we were presented with a copy of the menu`s we had each evening
