A Beautiful Classic Ship

Review for Queen Mary 2 (QM2) to Baltic Sea

My wife and I have been on cruises with all the major lines. This cruise was magical. First --hats off to Cunard for even adding this itinerary--chasing the Northern Lights in Norway was a gamble. It was spectacular --and we had two ports cancelled as a result of storms. This ship is not a "rust bucket"--it is a beautiful and understated ship with great common areas; great staff; the best ...

Cruise and the service provided I would rate just about good enough, though there is absolutely no margin. Brittania Club worth the extra money. Great setting, relaxed and not rushed. Plenty of choice. Entertainment was adequate. Repeated mediocre singer and decayed comedian again budget affected. Singing group were very good. Plenty of room in well-appointed auditorium. Ample room on ...

Despite paying the Cunard Fare and having second sitting dining confirmed, we were forced into open dining. Maitre’d was unable to assist and seemed very stressed. Overheard many comments of a similar nature. There are not enough staff on board to provide proper service. The staff who are on board are run off their feet and look miserable. Waits of 30 minutes in the Commodore Club. Queues ...

Northern Lights success

We chose this cruise hoping to see the Northern Lights but the warnings come thick and fast once you are aboard that it is a 1 in 10 chance of success. However...on a ship's tour from Tromso we had success. The night before an announcement came from the Captain at 2am that the Lights were visible and we joined the rush to the top deck to see the display with was minimal so delighted to see them on ...

This was my first time on Cunard since QE2 in 1996 and my expectations based on my previous experience were high. I am a well seasoned cruiser having taken over 25 cruises since the 1990s. First impressions of the exterior of the ship were that it was a little tired and rusty, especially our balcony, although that didn't really bother me. I was very impressed with the interior decor which was ...

Extremely Disappinted by Queens Grill

We selected this short cruise as a good way for us to treat ourselves to Queens Grill and try it out. It was a good job that we did this , as we were extremely disapointed and will never waste our money on the Grills experience again. Starting with embarkation. We don't think Cunard understand the meaning of "Priority" in Priority Embarkation. We were herded into the same queue as everyone ...

Met or exceeded our high expectations in Queen’s Grill

First time on Cunard after 30+ cruises on other lines (mostly Seabourn, HAL, and Celebrity); this 4 day itinerary fit well with a week-long visit to London. Decided to splurge for a Queen’s Grill (Q5, 8181) aft suite, and felt it was worth every penny. Boarding was efficient, ship was immaculate, staff all around friendly and helpful, fellow shipmates were equally so. Had heard beforehand that ...

A trip on Cunard had been on my bucket list for some time, after recently losing a couple of close friends way to early in their lives we decided it was time to start to realise some of our dreams before it was too late. As DH was very apprehensive about Cunard being too 'posh' and 'stuffy' we decide on short 7nt cruise on QV to the Fjords (QV221) long enough to warrant the long slog down south to ...

A short trip to Mull and back

We arrived at about 2pm ready for our boarding time of 2.15. It was a very smooth embarkation and we were on board by 2.30. To say the ship has just had a refit, I noticed some of the carpets needed to be replaced. Other than that everything seems to be up to the usual standard. It was nice to see that most of the facilities were open again. The service in all of the bars and the ...

We have done more than 30 cruises with Cunard which has always been our first choice for cruising until now! We chose this cruise for the itinerary, including the scenic cruise through the Mull of Kintyre which was truly spectacular and a plus. Overall the cruise was a big disappointment primarily because the standard of service was not ‘White Star’. In the Princess Grill restaurant, the ...
