We booked our cruise on the QM2 in April and waited patiently for the next months to pass; couldn't wait. The "big day" finally arrived. Fortunately, we were in Queens Grill and were whisked through the line at 11:00 a.m. and were in our cabin and unpacked by 12:00 noon. I cannot begin to describe how gorgeous our penthouse was...flat screen T.V., granite top bar, gorgeous tiled bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, king-size bed with beautiful bedspread and drapes, two sliding glass doors out to a very spacious balcony. We were thrilled with the decor. Our butler "Pierre" was quietly there for us throughout. We were especially happy with the way the ship was run. The Queens Grill restaurant was quiet yet friendly. No banging dishes; no loud noises. Very relaxing & delicious food. They truly know what they are doing on this ship.
Were are seasoned cruisers ... we have cruised on various ships in the past but this was the best! Although there were over 2,600 passengers we never felt crowded. I guess it's the way they "separate" the dining room depending on category. There were no "cattle calls" at dinner time. In Queens & Princess Grill you are free to enter the dining room between 7-9 p.m. This made the dining experience very leisurely. We also were happy with the Queens Grill lounge. A quiet, relaxing room for a pre-dinner cocktail.
We enjoyed it so much we are booking a 12-night Hawaii cruise in February 2006.
