Ship Facts: Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Deck Plans
Honeymoon on the Queen Mary II
My husband and I took the transatlantic crossing on the Queen Mary II and were very pleased with almost all aspects of the cruise.

Embarkation and disembarkation were very smooth and well organized.

Our room was pretty and clean and the design was elegant. The robes and slippers in every stateroom are another nice touch.

Food was very well done in the restaurants with a good selection and presentation. Room service breakfast was lovely and the staff would try to accommodate written special requests, even rather strange ones.

The one negative with the food was that food in the cafeteria was often cold or not fresh. However, even the buffets had beautiful presentation.

Our waiter was WONDERFUL!! He was not only funny, very fast, and polite but he let us know some of the ins and out of how cruising worked. He also remembered I loved dark chocolate, so when there were dark chocolates after dessert, he always made sure to bring a couple more for me.

We were quite a bit younger than the couples on-board, but for us it was not a problem, as we are a bit old fashioned.

Almost all passengers were well dressed for the occasion everyone seemed very friendly and helpful.

We especially enjoyed afternoon tea as well as trivia in the pub, where you could win real prizes.

Our only one complaint was that the Cunard travel agent promised us a special complimentary honeymoon package with champagne in your stateroom on arrival, fresh flowers in your stateroom on arrival, a congratulations card from your Captain, and a formal portrait photograph. These things were not delivered and when my husband asked why, they took two days to get back to us eventually saying that we are Americans and it did not apply to our country. This disappointed us quite a bit, as we were looking forward to the extra touch.

Overall, it was a great cruise and we would happily travel on this ship again.
