First time on Cunard, and a Trans-Atlantic as well!

This cruise was a bucket list for my DH, as I prefer ports and warmer weather. He had hopes of all things British and the ship did not disappoint. He enjoyed high tea and great conversations with our fellow passengers, many who were from the UK. I enjoyed it as well, especially the Cunard Insight's talks. One speaker was a Forensic Medical Examiner and he was fantastic! Every day, there was a ...

We missed a cruise due to the pandemic so focused on “the future” which finally arrived November 1, 2022. Mister wanted to see the Northern Lights. I wanted to see Norway. Perfect. We booked everything through Cunard, including airport-hotel and (returning) port-airport. This review will also include a subsequent TA Southampton to NY Vacation got off to an inauspicious start as we arrived at ...

Awful and Appalling Service so far

Had a cruise credit to use up. Was given a promotion to include drinks up to 12 USD for bars and room service. Room service last night refused to service an order for a Diet Coke. Asked the steward. Another refusal. Grills concierge at about 9 am promised a refrigerator supply of the soda. 11 45. No soda. Asked to see food and beverage coordinator. I would have brought on soda (and soap - see ...

I chose this Crossing because it was Cunard's annual Crossing with the British National Orchestra. At Southampton, I stayed on the ship and went to northern Norway and back for another 13 days on the ship. So, I was on board the QM2 for 20 days as a solo traveler. I was in a different stateroom for the Norway portion of my journey. This Crossing with the orchestra was memorable, and I am glad ...

Reports of QM2’s demise are very premature. It’s not tatty, it’s not falling apart. An odd bit of rust, but the interior looks stunning and in good nick. Sailed Queens Grill so comments may not apply to other cabins. Cabin was lovely. I think PG cabin would be fine next time. The butler and his assistant were fantastic, as was the standard of service everywhere (May be a touch slow in the ...

Interesting to read other recent reviews - our experiences were very similar. It wasn't a bad cruise and there were highlights - we enjoyed our cabin and the housekeeper was generally good - but otherwise we left thinking that we wouldn't rush back to Cunard. Service was our biggest gripe- Britannia restaurant was very hit and miss - one head waiter actually told me off loudly for sitting at a ...

People complaining about QM2 must be looking for problems. Loved everything about our trip, food was great, service was 1st class. Mostly ate in Britannia Club but did also use Golden Lion and Kings buffet sometimes. Good choice of food for for every meal, food was very good and staff very attentive. Bar staff very good in every bar we had been in from Commodore to G32. Good choice of ...

QM 2 is a wonderful ship. It is very nautical and has a large number of venues in which to eat, dance, drink or listen to music. The activities on this crossing which focused on art and design were very good. The entertainment in the main showroom was fair. The food is commparable to most mid to upper tier ships which is good but not great. The pub had good food and an excellent irish duo ...

Okay, first things first - the very worst embarkation experience in 40 years of cruising. Brooklyn's Red Hook terminal is small, over-crowds easily, and was understaffed. We stood on line for two solid hours. Horrible. Regarding my title, please leave behind any ideas of 21st century cruising. Cunard is firmly rooted in a prior age - and that is good and bad - depending on expectations. ...

First of all, I am a very experienced cruiser including very high end like Regent and more moderate lines like Celebrity. I was very excited to sail on Cunard as I had heard so much praise and accolades for the white star service, the food and the elegance of the ship. So my perspective is comparing to what I know of other lines. First of all, the good. Hands down, the cocktails are the ...
