Ok but not for us
"This 'crossing' was part of a trip which included a coach journey on the east coast of USA and Canada. Though we have been with many cruise lines, we had never done Cunard so we were looking forward to sampling the..."Read More

ENJOYABLE - BUT SLIGHTLY DISAPPOINTING!

Cunard boasts that the RMS Queen Mary 2 is the only true ‘ocean liner’ afloat in the world today, though I have not yet discovered why it is said to be different from, for example, the Queen Victoria or the Queen Elizabeth, the other two Cunard ships currently in service. (A fourth ‘Queen’ is due to be launched in a couple of years’ time). The Queen Mary 2 (QM2) is the largest of the three at ...

This was my fourth transatlantic crossing on board Queen Mary 2, but the first during the summer season. This was not the most memorable Overall: The weather was excellent for this transatlantic crossing, very sunny and minimal sea state. The ship was rather quiet during this crossing, during the day and during the evenings. The day time program wasn't particularly exciting or ...

This is my third transatlantic crossing on board Queen Mary 2. I've gotten to know the ship very well and the quirks of the ship. I enjoyed the cruise a lot, but perhaps not my favourite transatlantic crossing. Ship: She is a beautiful ship, her public spaces are spacious and the art deco decor is nostalgic and hearkens back to the golden age of ocean liners. You never feel that there are ...

I recently sailed on Queen Mary 2 for a round-trip transatlantic crossing from Southampton to New York and return. This was my first experience of Cunard, having previously sailed once with Celebrity but mostly with Disney Cruise Line (with my late DH, as a couple who don’t particularly like children but enjoy the high Disney service standards whether on land or at sea). EMBARKATION I ...

We took a repositioning transatlantic cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to Southampton on Celebrity’s Silhouette, then took Cunard’s QM II back to the States. Taking longer trips is one of the perks of being retired! Retired or not though, I don’t appreciate Cunard’s ineptitude at getting passengers on and off the ship; a basic and routine task. As Platinum members we had a special line for ...

This was our fourth crossing of the North Atlantic on the Queen Mary 2. As on the previous trips we opted for a obstructed view cabin on deck 8. We like the location, close to the gym, Commodore Club and buffet and outdoor promenade on deck 7. As it was a winter crossing we got some of the famous North Atlantic weather (motion of the ocean as the captain put it), two days of huge swells and waves ...

Getting on board in Southhampton was a breeze. Ship is beautifully decorated. The ship’s library was huge, with more books than some schools’ libraries. Our stateroom (with balcony) seemed slightly larger than similar rooms we’ve had while cruising. Dining room meals were varied and creative, with some occasional misses. Lunch buffets were very good; breakfast could use some ...

I chose this cruise to avoid jet lag on a return from vacation. I had sailed QM2 previously and really enjoyed it. I have recently been travelling on Regent and wanted something comparable so I booked a Queens Grill cabin. I have been on approximately 35 cruises so am not new to the experience. Overall the experience was really nice. The cabin was huge and the butler (Vishal) was great and ...
