Our 5th cruise on the QM2 and possibly our 40th cruise overall. The Queen has clearly lost her crown. The ship is aging and needs refurbishing. Seating in the Illuminations theater needs to be fixed so they stay upright, need to be reupholstered; the public areas need to be kept free of detritus and stray bits of food and/or personal effects; the food in the main dining room was absolutely abysmal with unimaginative menus and either over-salted, over spiced or overcooked depending upon the dish. The meat that was offered, no matter what form of meat, were cheap cuts of meat and the vegetables were of poor quality. Desserts were boring or bland and also uncreative. Specialty restaurant was excellent with wonderful choices, wonderful service and ambience but you do pay a bit for the meal, unlike the dining room where the cost of the holiday cruise is high but the food totally inedible. The overall hotel service was poor. Day excursions which were planned well in advance were canceled at the last minute with poor instructions given on how to redeem the cost. Help was nowhere to be found once in port if you needed to find your way to the day excursion transportation and no recognizable shuttle provided to easily get back to the ship. people with disabilities were ignored or shoved out of the way when getting on to or near the buses; simply dreadful operation overall. Caribbean is less than thrilling now because of civil unrest on some of the islands, too many megaships in each port at each time and in our case, ship staff unwilling to assist or not knowledgeable enough. As passengers we felt ignored or simply dismissed as being of any importance on the overall cruise. Only good thing about this ship is the well maintained well staffed and well stocked beautiful library. wish other ships had this as well, such as Celebrity Summit which did away with the library entirely.Shore excursions poorly handled with lots of misinformation by the staff and then corrected. Staff hard to find, rarely in their offices and never respond to any phone calls. Confusing directions for shore trips and shore vendors badly vetted in terms of their transportation. Staff on purser's desk very unfriendly and dismissive. We were so disappointed with this trip and the service, we decided to forgo thinking about rebooking a trip to Canada on her. 12 nights was way too long for such mediocre service and awful food, 14 nights would be an absolute nightmare. 7 nights might be passable if Carnival sells Cunard to someone else and Cunard recognizes some of the QM2's major issues.

The ship has become tired looking, in particular on the outside. The first impression is rusty and a tad shabby. It can now longer be described as luxurious (there are too many truly luxurious ships out there now). The passenger population consisted of a primarily older age group, with many of 70 years plus. A huge number were immobile, infirm and with conditions that led to emergency evacuations by helicopter, detours off route and subsequent delays, hospitalisation, a call for blood donations and one death. Too many Zimmer frames, mobility scooters, sticks and wheelchairs. The ship felt like a floating nursing home, rather than a luxury liner. This was an aspect which is not advertised in any of their marketing material or on their website, featuring only well-dressed models. Not to mention a nasty respiratory virus which was brought on board and spread very quickly, overwhelming the medical department. It was not what I wished for on a holiday. Shore excursions were oversubscribed, which made them less enjoyable. Some of the islands visited were still recovering from the devastation through a hurricane 2 years ago. The impact was that buildings were still in disrepair, shops had shut and the local population were intimidating and pestering in order to get ones custom. Generally I felt the calibre of passengers had changed. Only a few years ago this particular cruise had professional people as passengers and their families, who dressed and behaved the part. It has come down a lot in every aspect and at times it felt like the local Council Estate was on holiday. I saw women drinking from refillable bottles, hidden in their handbags, in the Ballroom. I saw miniature drinks bottles being hidden with only mixers being ordered. I could go on. It felt very downmarket. In the end I was glad to get off and get home. Read Less

The checkin before boarding was efficient and fast. Stateroom cat. BF with balcony at the 11th deck was very confortable and large enough altough the bathroom was so small but functional. Britannia restaurant was great but meal was not so special: i never see foie gras or escargots! King's court buffet was great altough entries was always the same all the week long. Some waiters was unfriendly and arogant, which is unacceptable. The steward of our stateroom was also cheeky, and too familiar sometimes. He brought my suitcase into the stateroom while it was covered in red dust (?) and didn't even pass a rag. Same at thePursers office where staff was not very welcoming and did'nt make any effort when your mother tongue is not english (french) The quality of the staff was a real negative point of the cruise when you know you paid 4000€ for the week. The decoration of the ship is magnificent and chic without beeing too ostentatious. Entertainment was poor, as it was always the same show, same movies or same conference several time the week. Difficult to find a seat to eat at the golden lion pub, as a single person took a 4 seat table just to drink a beer for 2 hours, and waiters didn't say nothing. Unable to get a baggage tag with "Cunard" logo, (Easyjet or Ryannair does)... Never received a satisfaction questionnaire from Cunard... Read Less
