Twenty-Seven Days on the QM2

We travelled across the Atlantic, to the Caribbean and back to NYC then back across the Atlantic in November / December. Booking and Boarding We booked a saver fare a long time ago and hence did not have an allocated cabin other than that we were guaranteed a balcony with a sea view. Three days before departure, a cabin allocation silently appeared online in our account with Cunard and later ...

I have always wanted to cross the USA by train, and since Covid, I have lost any appetite I had for flying. The QM2 gave me the opportunity to sail to the US, travel across the US by train both ways, stay a few nights on the West Coast, and pick up the QM2 from New York back to the UK. The time gap between the outward voyage on 13th November and the homeward voyage on the 3rd December - 12 ...

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 ...

A Beautiful Classic Ship

My wife and I have been on cruises with all the major lines. This cruise was magical. First --hats off to Cunard for even adding this itinerary--chasing the Northern Lights in Norway was a gamble. It was spectacular --and we had two ports cancelled as a result of storms. This ship is not a "rust bucket"--it is a beautiful and understated ship with great common areas; great staff; the best ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

We selected this short cruise as a good way for us to treat ourselves to Queens Grill and try it out. It was a good job that we did this , as we were extremely disapointed and will never waste our money on the Grills experience again. Starting with embarkation. We don't think Cunard understand the meaning of "Priority" in Priority Embarkation. We were herded into the same queue as everyone ...

This was my first time on Cunard since QE2 in 1996 and my expectations based on my previous experience were high. I am a well seasoned cruiser having taken over 25 cruises since the 1990s. First impressions of the exterior of the ship were that it was a little tired and rusty, especially our balcony, although that didn't really bother me. I was very impressed with the interior decor which was ...
