Queen's Grill - not a thrill

QM2 Southampton to Cape Town January 2018 was our 25th cruise but first on Cunard. We normally choose inclusive cruise lines such as Regent, Silversea, Crystal or Seabourn but have also cruised with Princess, Celebrity, Oceania and Azamara. We decided on Queen's Grill because we imagined this would be the epitome of cruise life. It wasn't. Biggest disappointment was the Queen's Grill ...

We boarded the QM2 on January 10th sailing from Southampton to Cape Town. Embarkation was very good. Stateroom 5319 with enclosed balcony. Not as clean as expected, one light fitting tied on with plastic ties as it was obviously broken. Thank goodness for no rough seas. Terrible smell in bathroom so a visit to the pursers office and a wait in a long queue. Problem sorted very quickly. Sheets ...

There were at least five other interesting places I felt we could have/should have stopped. Namibia was wonderful ; Gran Canaria just plain dull; and Madeira utterly fabulous. Overall, I personally feel that this ship is too large for ...

We sailed from Southampton to Cape Town - the first leg of QM2's current world cruise. Generally, once everyone (passengers & crew) settled down, it was a fine experience. The ship was full and, at first, things didn't run too smoothly but by the time we reached Madeira everyone was more or less au fait with what to do and where to go etc. My wife wasn't too happy with the dining experience in ...

We sailed south on the first leg of QM2's 2014 world cruise to Cape Town. The first few days to Madeira were not the greatest. The weather was roughish, the passengers were newcomers and the crew was shaking down. In addition, the poor weather kept everyone indoors which, with a full ship, left little room for manoeuvre. Madeira was a pleasant interlude and from there onward we had a pretty good ...
