QM2 old but still elegant
"I stood in line (yet again) at the pursers office to do this and they gave us new voyage cards which then would not unlock the cabin door so had to go back to the pursers, once again standing in line, before it was finally sorted.After immigration we then had to sit in a shed on a very hot day for 3 hours with even no water or anywhere to buy water before re-boarding...."Read More

Review for a U.S.A. Cruise on Queen Mary 2 (QM2)

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Just back from a 2 way transatlantic voyage on QM2. We had been upgraded from deck 5 with a sheltered balcony to deck 11 with a full balcony, which was nice, but unfortunately with inclement weather we got little use. The weather on the way to New York was fine but cold and very windy and on the return was stormy for most of the way till our last day sailing. I enjoyed our cruise, however it ...

Review for a U.S.A. Cruise on Queen Mary 2 (QM2)

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Chose this cruise because we were celebrating both my husband and I 65th birthdays. Wanted something special. This was not what we expected. The weather is obviously nothing that can be controlled but it was bad enough that out of 7 days we could only use the deck twice. Force 8 gales and it was not pleasant. The average age appeared to be older generation, lots of disabled people, more like a ...

Cunard's ineptness

Review for a U.S.A. Cruise on Queen Mary 2 (QM2)

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was a 90th birthday cruise for a long-time Cunard passenger. Embarkation took over two hours(one person fainted) and young children were being held by parents for long periods of time. Dining room service was extremely slow and the servers were not pleasant. Took 20-25 minutes to get a beverage. We were rushed out of the dining room every night. Sheet cake ordered and paid for was not ...

Just returned from above trip and a few observations on the Entertainment Cunard Insights Programme - thought that Robert Gates and Chase Untermeyer on the outward leg were excellent but unfortunately the other speakers were bland and uninteresting. on the return journey Lord and Lady Howard were both interesting and sincere. however, again the other speakers left something to be desired, I ...

The Best Vacation Ever

Review for a U.S.A. Cruise on Queen Mary 2 (QM2)

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

After spending a couple of weeks in Britain with my family, we ended our travels with a Transatlantic crossing. I had previously been on one of the maiden voyages of the Carnival Magic, which had almost convinced me never to take another cruise vacation. Fortunately, the Queen Mary 2 could not have been a more different experience. The Queen Mary 2 is a beautiful ship whose engineering more ...

Unfortunate trend reversed

Review for a U.S.A. Cruise on Queen Mary 2 (QM2)

6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

I wrote a review a while back titled "Declining standards in a single year," complaining that the food in the Britannia was not what it had been. This was our third crossing in 2013, and I'm happy to say that the food is back to what we expected -- i.e., very good, indeed remarkable under the circumstances. The service is now, if anything, even better. And my fears about the simplified dress code ...

Fabulous Crossing

Review for a U.S.A. Cruise on Queen Mary 2 (QM2)

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have recently returned from our first crossing on the in August, 2013 from Southampton to New York. What a wonderful experience! We are veteran cruisers and travelers who have been many places on ships from Iceland to Antarctica but had never done a crossing before. We chose the Princess Grille category and we very happy with the selection. It was well worth the money. The cabin was ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

My wife and I took the Cunard Queen Mary 2 World Voyage 2010 - Our trip started in Southampton January 11th and we left the Queen 91 days and 33 ports later in Ft. Lauderdale. The size of the Queen affords the passengers the luxury of large public rooms and lots of space to lounge around. The airiness and many large windows gives the light and view a chance to be admired by all passengers from ...
