We have never been on any of the Queens and felt that the time had come to have this unique experience.. a time warp.. a visit to an era long past. We are experienced cruisers, being frequent passengers on the Celebrity, Regent and ... Read more

Review QM2 Nov 2016 I was so excited at the thought of sailing on the QM2, the ‘crème de la crème’ of ships, however I was disappointed. I am fairly new to cruising having only cruised twice on Celebrity in ... Read more

This Trans Atlantic crossing started off very badly for us. Air Canada unfortunately did not see fit to send our bags with us from Toronto, and so we arrived at the ship with the clothes on our back, and no toiletries. Just our meds and a ... Read more

This was a second cruise for me on the QM2, and it began with a delay boarding in Southampton, surprising after literally walking right on the ship after my arrival earlier in October in NYC to travel to the UK. It proved to be a ... Read more

First time on Cunard and it did not disappoint. Everything exceeded expectations. I especially loved the "rock"n"roll" of the ship during some rough sea days. Not everyone would agree. This was a jazz cruise and ... Read more

The highlight of our October crossing was the selection of terrific jazz performances by Blue Note artists Gregory Porter, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and their bands. Headline concerts in the Royal Theater, more informal concerts in the ... Read more

It was on my husband's "bucket list" to cross the sea on a real ocean liner, and this is the only one sailing today. We also love to ballroom dance and were intrigued to try "the largest ballroom at sea". We travelled ... Read more

Taking the Queen Mary 2 transatlantic had long been on my wish list, but I resisted as long as Cunard charged an outrageously high surcharge. I signed on the minute I heard about the new single cabins. My cabin on Deck 2 was roomy ... Read more

Chose this crossing as I don't fly and thought it was about time I visited the US and Canada. Embarkation was quick and efficient although why I had to give my hotel address in NYC when I had ESTA was puzzling to say the least. When I ... Read more

Cunard makes everything easy, from embarkation to disembarkation. While not yet complete, the 2016 refit of the QM2 is nicely planned. They improved the layout of the vessel, while leaving the favorite locations unchanged. The food is very ... Read more

This 'crossing' was part of a trip which included a coach journey on the east coast of USA and Canada. Though we have been with many cruise lines, we had never done Cunard so we were looking forward to sampling the white star service. ... Read more

We choose QM2 over flying to Europe when the price becomes competitive. It did this Aug and we cancelled free tickets to take advantage. Although Cunard makes much ballyhoo over the remastering, it was confined principally to the Grill ... Read more

I chose this crossing of the Atlantic from NYC to Southampton because it met my goal of enjoying a crossing without jet lag. Also, my wife and I were going to be in the UK for about a month so starting in Southampton was a good start. ... Read more

QM2 is like a new ship after her remastering. Everything seemed new - carpets, furniture, appointments. We have done a transatlantic before, but the Cunard "crossing" is indeed a different experience. I could tell the QM2 is a ... Read more

We were already vacationing in the U.K. when we had the sudden idea of returning to NYC by boat. Fortunately, the Aug. 1 sailing had one cabin available--a Britannica Club on deck 12--and we grabbed it. It was our first transatlantic ... Read more
