We chose the cruise as QM2 is the last ship of its type, also going through the Suez Canal. We ticked both of those boxes and that is the best we can say about the cruise. It was infact the worst cruise we have ever been on. Due to norovirus on ship we were refused entry to 2 ports and not allowed into Jordons waters. We have experienced this before but not on such a large scale, hundreds ...

Prospect of interesting Ports of Call were our reason to book this cruise. Embarkation in Dubai was very efficient and we enjoyed a fantastic sail away from the city. However we were hit by the noro virus on board soon after and could not land for 7 days so missed Sallalah and Jordan. However this was compensated by fantastic two day stay in Haifa. Visited Jerusalem during Passover and Masada on ...

The easiest way to provide accurate feedback is to share my letter, with detailed attachments, which I sent to Cunard on 3rd June with the audience. If Cunard were serious in wishing to be a 5* cruise line I would have long expected their reply by now and not merely "an acknowledgement" that my communication will be dealt with "in due course". Obviously a Queens Grill passenger is not very ...

We decided to take this trip as we had previously enjoyed cruising on Thompson cruises and fancied going 'upmarket.' We were really looking forward to experiencing the QM2 The organisation before the trip was good with a lot of information from Cunard but as we were using a tour agency we also,had excellent information from them which arrived before the information from Cunard and they arranged ...

Our previous two cruises were both with Celebrity so it is in this context that I comment on our QM2 experience. First the good points: Our cabin even though it was a 'port-hole' class on Deck 6 near the bow was excellent and I couldn't fault it. Our steward was quite shy and retiring; he did the job but we saw little of him. The beautiful Art Deco theatre called Illuminations was excellent and ...

Boarding ship in Dubai was fast and easy. Luggage delivered to cabin quickly. As we were platinum members of cunard we did receive a few perks that helped out.The QM2 was a grand attractive elegant first moment of truth. We loved the decor, carpeting, winding staircases, music playing lightly in various lounges during the day and pre dinner. It was very Titanic in its looks. Elegant old world. ...
