David Garrett German Cruise from Hamburg

Queen Mary 2 was a total disappointment

Total disappointment in the main dinning room Britannia (1) We are a party of six, setting of tables was unreasonably tight between tables. One end of our table was against a wall, waiters had to squeeze themselves ...

Still My Favorite Ship!

We were on QM2 for the 21-day roundtrip cruise from NYC to Norway. This was our first voyage back on QM2 since the refit. She received a very nice face-lift along with improvements in food and cabins. (A few ...

First time cruiser

My first impressions began with late lunch on embarkation day in Kings Court. Dodging employees with food carts, they didn’t give way for guests - to the point of being dangerous. Good food selections available, ...

"Princess" for Nine Days!

As someone who always believed inside cabins were sufficient I was dazzled by my first time in a suite (albeit the smallest suite possible). Still, a walk-in closet on a ship and a bathtub! We really enjoyed our ...

A Mighty Ship

We cruise with Cunard most years, but found to our shock that it was ten years since we had been on QM2, so we booked this cruise. Basically it was a cruise made up of bits of other voyages, so did not have quite ...

Great mini cruise with interesting stops.

I fell in love with the QM2 when I did the transatlantic crossing last October. I booked another transatlantic so wanted another one in between. Because the single cabins had gone then the cost was extra expensive ...

Disappointing and expensive when on board

We chose a short 5 night cruise out of SOU to give our friends a taste of cruise life - he has mobility issues and has not travelled for some time - we thought a cruise would be ideal. The whole embarkation process ...

A pigs ear of a cruise

We always felt that this was going to be a pigs ear of a cruise. It started somewhat inauspiciously when we headed through blinding torrential rain along the M27, heading for our usual Dock Gate 4. Suddenly my ...

Queen Mary 2 - Vastly improved to the point of perfection

I did a short cruise on QM2 to see whether the 2016 refit had made a difference. In 2008 I had sailed to New York on QM2. The ship's decor was tacky, cheap and tasteless and looked more like a cinema multiples than ...
