A Brilliant Experience


This was our second crossing on QM2, having sailed two years ago Westbound in December. The Atlantic in December *is* the destination for us as much as the QM2 herself, and neither disappointed. Perhaps because ...

QM2 Very Good But...

Having last sailed the TransAtlantic crossing on the Old Girl the QE2 in 1993, our trip to Europe from NYC coincided with the QM2's early November sailing date, so we decided to take the ship instead of flying. The ...

Perfect for a quick get-a-way with all the luxury of the Queen

We choose the QM2 because we wanted to experience a Cunard cruise as well as the QM2 itself, being such a well-known ship, with so much history and sense of luxury. That it had from the start to the last day. While ...

Fantastic Christmas Cruise

My partner had done the QM2 Transatlantic but I had never cruised before so it was all new to me and I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. We had a wonderful time on the Queen Victoria over Christmas last year, i'd ...

It was great - but missing Todd English

For 799 USD on a balcony incl. 850 USD OBC you better go than staying home. Embarkation was "disappointing" since the weather was foggy and rainy. So not a real welcome feeling with a great farewell out of New ...

Liner? I call it a big ferry.

We paid a huge sum for 18 nights in top Queens Grill class. I found very little in return from Cunard/Carnival. We were not shown to our cabin (we did not know this ship). Except for breakfast the food did ...

Cunard & The Queen Elizabeth Lived Up To My Lofty Expectations

This was my 10th cruise and my first on a Cunard ship. I've always held Cunard - with its British roots and regal history - in great esteem. Often when I look so forward to something and build it up in my head, I am ...

Second Crossing - As Lovely as the First

We first did a QM2 transatlantic in the summer of '12, and having found a tempting rate decided to see what might be different about a winter crossing. On the whole, we found the Queen much the same as it was two ...

Tradition, formality, and civility! It still exists on Cunard.

My partner and I recently returned from a 12-day Mediterranean cruise onboard Cunard's QUEEN ELIZABETH. This ranks as one of those trips that was just about as near perfect as one could wish for. For those only ...

QM2 SOU-HAM-Norway-HAM-SOU May 2012

A ride on the QM2 cannot be compared with a 'normal' cruise ship, since its is built to cross the atlantic. We were (mostly) very pleased with the set-up. Cabin 11072 on the 11th floor was very comfortable ...
