We've crossed the Atlantic on the QM2 a bunch of times, but this time was memorable because of the rescue at sea of a yachtsman from a disabled craft. We watched from our balcony, and then learned from a Q & A session between the ... Read more

After looking and booking several different cruises for my 60th birthday which included a stay in Europe and trip back on QM2, I decided to save a little money and do the roundtrip Belgian escape from NTC (Red Hook Brooklyn). This had the ... Read more

We very much enjoyed our 25 day Sydney-San Francisco cruise on Queen Victoria. It was made even more enjoyable by our upgrade to a Princess Grill Suite. The first benefit of the upgrade was the priority embarkation when we went ... Read more

We've sailed Cunard 9 times including 6 Transatlantic crossings on the QM2. We love the interior design of the ships, so many lovely spacious public rooms where one can relax and enjoy the experience. We love the variety of things to do ... Read more

We chose this cruise as an alternative way to get from the States to England. I am glad we did. Our cabin (sheltered balcony) was quite nice and more than adequate for a winter crossing of the North Atlantic. A few minor details, such as ... Read more

The highlight of our October crossing was the selection of terrific jazz performances by Blue Note artists Gregory Porter, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and their bands. Headline concerts in the Royal Theater, more informal concerts in the ... Read more

Embarkation was quick and easy. Our room was ready and was overall impressed with the efficiency. Although this ship has recently undergone a remastering and will always be the Icon of the Seas - we still found it tired looking. I am ... Read more

Chose this cruise because they cancelled the earlier Victoria sailing and we wanted to cruise back to the states just having completed a Costa cruise. We were celebrating our 60th Anniversary/and 80th birthdays. Because there was a lapse ... Read more

We were on the post-remastering cruise for the QM2, boarding in Hamburg immediately after the dry dock. We love the QM2 and love the experience of transatlantic crossings. This was our 20th cruise and our 6th time on Cunard. ... Read more

We had heard how wonderful Cunard were and how much better than all their rivals. We should have seen a red light when our first two encounters were being told to board a few hours later than planned due to novovirus being rampant on the ... Read more

Background: I am no stranger to QM2, this is my 9th crossing on her but the first in the middle of winter. Queen Mary 2 was built to be a versatile ship designed to be used both for crossing the North Atlantic at will and also adaptable ... Read more

One complaint: Natalie Cole cancelled for this Blue Note Jazz Cruise and we were among the passengers who were not informed ahead of time. Confusion: a last minute change from 4 formal nights to one formal night. OVERALL, this crossing ... Read more

It was nice to be a part of history, and the food was quite better. The grandness one sees is fake, however. For example, the handrails in the too-long passenger corridors are plastic-laminate covered plastic poles that are peeling. There ... Read more

We booked this trip as the 'holiday of a lifetime', it certainly was not. The cabin we were allocated 1041 had plumbing that did not always work, apparently because of the rough weather - this seemed to be a known problem, I would have ... Read more

In October I found a good deal (interior, OV, and balcony all the same price) for the first 11 days of QE's 2015 World Voyage from Southampton to Fort Lauderdale. I let Cunard book my one-way airfare to London and got a great deal (about ... Read more

Left Southampton nearly 12 hours late, after a real mess up with the embarkation. 1000 passengers were held in a football stadium and the other 1000 were sent, after the stadium was full, to the terminal. That's where the chaos started, ... Read more

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 years ago, improved in ... Read more

Being seasoned cruisers we should have known better than to book a two week cruise, comprising of 13 sea days, 6 hours in New York, and Transatlantic crossing in mid November! Before the sea legs had even been unpacked we found ourselves ... Read more

Although only a mini cruise - 4 nights - we assumed it would be a fair reflection of a longer cruise. So given our experiences that longer cruise will never happen, Boarding was easy and our balcony cabin was very good. However the ... Read more

Despite the niggling criticisms, the Queen Mary 2 remains much the same as it was when we first cruised over seven years ago - a damned fine ship, with a great crew providing five-star service. Yes, I am sure a case can be made out for a ... Read more

Awful choice of Vegetarian Food. This is not our first transatlantic crossing. When we sailed 18 months ago we had informed Cunard that we were vegetarian and they told us we would be catered for. This did not happen, the Kings Court had ... Read more
