Ship Facts: Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Deck Plans
Wonderful journey
We boarded the ship in NY and were impressed with the embarkation process. We had an opportunity to have access to our room and were very impressed with the size of the Princess Grill room. The room was big and gave us room to walk around without bumping into each other. The additional closet space was a gift with all the clothes we had packed. Our room steward, Rommel, was very helpful and kept our room spotless.

The ship as a whole was impressive and very regal. Does not have the glitz and glamor of other cruise ships. It has lot's of wood railings and paneling. The ship was constantly being cleaned. I found the ship's staff very personable. Always wishing us a good day.

The food in all areas was very good. We had moments when we didn't feel like getting dressed formally and enjoyed the option of having a meal as we desired in the buffet. We also enjoyed the Todd English restaurant. Very good and the service was exceptional. Our service in the Princess Grill was very memorable. The whole restaurant staff were very personable and we were greeted at all meals with a smile. Our staff included Robert, Gordon, RoseMarie and Sanntosh. Our sommelier, Silvanna was very knowledgeable and gave us exceptional service. Patou and Yonell....... our Maitre D's were proper and meticulous. We enjoyed coming for our meals and having the exceptional service we expected at that level.

The shore excursions were wonderful.

The only caveat may be the cigarette smoking. As a non smoker...... it was not comfortable to have your next door neighbor smoking on his deck. We would have to close our deck door for a while. And parts of the interior had a smoky aroma.

We have taken a few cruises and know there are glitches. We accept those as part of traveling. We have met so many new friends that we keep in contact today on previous cruises and this cruise is no exception. I was involved with an informal aviation group meeting on sea days and enjoyed the impromptu discussions.

The disembarkation was easy and orderly. Our concierge finalized our arrival and made the journey a wonderful memory for my beautiful wife and our 25th anniversary.
