Wonderful Transatlantic Voyage
"QM2 is like a new ship after her remastering. Everything seemed new - carpets, furniture, appointments. We have done a transatlantic before, but the Cunard "crossing" is indeed a different experience. I could..."Read More

Transatlantic in November, from Southampton to NY and back. Return leg coincided with Literature Festival at sea, which made the ship much busier and removed many of the more usual enhancement events including the Planetarium. Mostly a good experience - food, entertainment, service, ship, stateroom, embarkation, library, bars, afternoon tea etc all of a very high standard. Staff almost always ...

My wife is mobility impaired and usually uses a wheelchair and so a lot of this report relates to the accessibility aspect of our two way Atlantic crossing on the QM2. We checked in about one hour early and that did not cause a problem. Embarkation at Southampton was easy and efficient although the postcode given on our e-tickets seemed to refer to a park in the middle of Southampton rather ...

A Solo Cruise - But Not So Alone

Having only traveled in the past by air, automobile, or train, it was high time I tried a cruise, and a transatlantic cruise to me, seemed most adventurous. Seven days alone, afloat on the temperamental Atlantic, inside a large ship filled with strangers, filled me with mild anticipation and intrepid fearfulness of what lay ahead on my crossing. Was I to perhaps be cut off from the outside ...

We brought this crossing, Southampton to New York, as an alternative to flights. Little did we know it would provide the tranquility we craved following two weeks of sightseeing. Cunard QM2 has the best entertainment ever experienced at sea. The service is impeccable. While we would rank the food at the Brittania restaurant as rather unremarkable, the Kings Court (buffet) was excellent! ...

Writing this review, especially for those considering taking the transatlantic who prefer NOT to wear tuxedos or dark suits with ties. I took on 4/28 from England to NYC. Before I took chance I read 100+ reviews on this site. Now I want to pay it forward. My wife and I took initially with reservations, as after 15 cruises, and being retired in Florida, we no longer enjoy dressing up on cruises. ...

Previous Cunard experience on Queen Victoria and sailing back home instead of flying. The relaxation of being aboard for 7 days without having to get up and out for excursions. Looking for a truly relaxing vacation being treated royally. These are the reasons we needed a Cunard vacation. We were not disappointed. Nothing, really nothing, went awry. The embarkation process was amazingly ...

This was our second Transatlantic cruise on QM2. We love this ship as it’s a proper ocean liner. Having read some reviews, all I can say is don’t listen. We had a wonderful time and I fail to see any issue with this cruise. The cabin... smallish yes, but everything there. And it is a ship, so space obviously won’t be the same as in a hotel. We had a balcony and enjoyed the fresh sea ...

Just for reference, we have done 16 previous cruises on 6 different lines, none on Cunard. This time we did Hamburg - Southampton - New York. It was, in short, a wonderful crossing. Why did we wait so long to try Cunard? Boarding in Hamburg was dreadful, great long line-ups. We were afraid it would be downhill from there but the exact opposite was true. The ship is gorgeous and luxurious and ...

Just returned from a transatlantic crossing (Southampton to New York) aboard the QM2 with the family. It was my first cruise and exceeded my expectations, just wonderful from top to bottom. I thought food and service in the main Britannia restaurant was top notch, wasn't so impressed by the canteen/buffet, but only used it at lunchtime. Didn't see the the point of spending more at the speciality ...

Transatlantic Voyage in this Proper Ocean Liner is Memorable and Worthy

An experience on the last operating "ocean liner" (versus cruise ships) was high on my must do list. The Queen Mary 2 (QM2) did not disappoint providing a much smoother sailing experience compared to luxury cruise ships operated by higher end companies. Most important to me was the fact that I never felt my bed shaking inside my midship cabin as I have on many occasions on "luxury cruise ships". ...
