We choose this itinerary because it sailed to Asia where we've never been. The timing (end of January, 2020 to February 2020) was perfect. We'd never been on Cunard even though we've cruised many times. We chose this line as we'd heard wonderful things about it. We were pleased with the ship, her amenities, the service and entertainment. We had an auspicious start in Dubai with easy embarkation. Our room was clean and well appointed. We loved Dubai and our next port Oman on our second day. The excursion was well planned, informative and interesting. It was shortly after this that my husband started to have a cough and chest congestion. He saw the ship's doctor and received Amoxycillin, even though he explained that this wasn't going to do him any good. As he knew, the chest infection deepened, and he returned to the doctor's several days later. This time he was given Prednisone. Despite the antibiotics, he became quite ill, but since there was no Coronavirus testing onboard, we will never know whether he had it. When he went to the doctor's office, there were a lot of passengers coughing and sick, waiting for their appointment. There was a lady at the indoor pool who was obviously sick. No one stopped her or said anything even though she was in a public space and close to other people. We found out from a British couple that they had read on the Cruise Critic website, while waiting for their flight to Dubai at Heathrow to embark on the QM2, that Cunard had cancelled Hong Kong. No one had infomed any of the passengers of this turn of events until after we'd all boarded and the ship was well under way on this eighteen-day itinerary. As the days passed, the cancellation of Hong Kong was announced. Singapore was the new end destination. That port too was cancelled, along with all other Asian destinations. Needless to say, this was probably our only time in our lives that we would be able to visit Asia, therefore, a huge disappointment. After sailing twelve straight days without porting, we ended up in Freemantle/Perth, Australia. Since we had booked our own flights, we were able to use the ship's satellite phone without cost to change our flights each time. In hindsight, I wonder how many people actually were sick with the Coronavirus but there cannot be any statistics on that topic because there was no testing. My suspicion is that many were ill. The world cruise, we later found out, abruptly eneded in Freemantl/Perth after the ship had circumvented Australia. We loved the ship, the ballroom dancing, the lounges, the onboard planetarium and the evening shows. The Zumba classes were outstanding-the instructor, Debora, excellent. Yes, I would take another Cunard cruise. We had booked the Norwegian Fjords for July 3, 2020 but have since cancelled due to the uncertainty of the world pandemic this year. Read Less

I love the QM2 - it really is unique amongst all the ships I've sailed on. What I particularly like is the fact that it never feels crowded, and the passengers tend to be a mix of nationalities. After my experiences with 4009 (see below) I was moved to 6026 This cabin has a porthole and is towards the very front of the ship. I thought it was perfect. There can be some noise issues with the port exterior door on deck 7 slamming as it is directly above the cabin but it just needs them to fix the mechanism so it gently closes. Food was excellent, staff were brilliant throughout (shoutout to the waiters in the Commodore lounge who were all consistently excellent), entertainment variable, the choirmaster (Andrew Cavendish-Grey) hysterical and even the tours were reasonably priced. This cruise was affected by the very beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak, so that our itinerary kept changing - first Hong Kong was cancelled, then all Asian ports but we were kept up to date and even though we ended up with a block of 12 sea days I never felt bored or that the high standards of the ship were slipping. Chris Foy one of the onboard Future Voyage Sales staff was outstanding and I'm booked on the QM2 Cape Town to Sydney cruise next year! Read Less

We choosed this World cruise on Cunard for the itinerary and the ship It was a very special cruise because of the Corona virus. Everyone was disappointed by the cancellation of the ports. But we understood , it was more safe to not stop in Asia. It was the end of January and we can only thanks Cunard, to have taken this terrible decision so quick, we were one of the first ship to change our itinerary We were every time update by the Captain. During all the voyage we knew the true of all was what happening, and it's very important, because when a terrible sanitary situaion is as it was all the people are afraid and it's very important to trust. When i read the commentary of Jenni88, i think, we were not on the same ship! The crew was exceptionnal, very close to the passengers, the Purser's office helpt every body as much as they could.. We got rideway our money back of all the excursion booked . We never went before to South Africa, and we couldn't go, it was a special situation and we can't blame nobody. We were until the 16 of April on the ship so until Southampton. Even the last month, from Fremantle to Southampton, the crew was very helpfull and kind with all of us. , We were so lucky to be with a so serious company as Cunard, and we are tanksfull for, all the crew did for us. Today we are all back in good shape, not one passenger was infected. And a vepositive point ,a new world cruise to explore all the place, we couldn't reach. Well done Cunard. Read Less
