1-10 of 13 Southampton to World Cruise Cunard Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Cruise Reviews
What a disappointment. Destinations were changed at least three times and itineraries cancelled at the last minute due to the coronavirus. Independent travelers were treated like second class citizens and given NO ASSISTANCE whatsoever from the QM2's staff. Passengers were forced to pay thousands of dollars to change flights countless times. The ship offered NO help to those passengers who did ...
It was my 70 th Birthday so we flew to Southampton to board QM2.
We are diamond members.
Apart from our room leaking from a broken toilet next door for a week ( again) being moved to a room that had unstable floors for a night ( as it wasn’t fit for anyone to live in) terrible waiters who reached across the table and your meal to pick up your wine and smell it
The list goes on. I am on ...
We choosed this World cruise on Cunard for the itinerary and the ship
It was a very special cruise because of the Corona virus.
Everyone was disappointed by the cancellation of the ports.
But we understood , it was more safe to not stop in Asia. It was the end of January and we can only thanks Cunard, to have taken this terrible decision so quick, we were one of the first ship to change ...
Excellent service and food, and world class shows. Entertained by Pam Ayres and educated by Lord Dannatt, or should that be the other way round? Special thanks to crew and staff, Roger, Chandra, Jane, Alex, Sid and many others. A great ocean liner - one of us gets sea sick on smaller ships but no problems on QM2. Enjoyed different venues each morning for coffee. Never actually went to the famous ...
The boarding experience was delayed as the ship was not berthed at its regular dock as it was undergoing maintenance. We arrived 2 hours earlier than requested on the ticket so weren’t surprised about inevitable delays. We were on board by 1pm after arriving at 11am but were asked not to arrive until 2pm so all in all very successful. Every cruise I have been on since 1992 I have encountered ...
Boarded for the first leg of the World cruise, Southampton to Dubai.
Embarkation was 2 1/2 hours; very poor.
Ship was tired and dirty. Carpets were threadbare and stained.
Entertainment was generally poor. Drummer was brilliant as was the trumpeter soloist and the juggler. Opera Boys did too much silly talking and not enough singing. Singers and dancers were far too loud; many left the ...
We chose this cruise for three reasons:
1. it stopped at many ports/countries we had never visited,
2. we wanted to be away for much of the Canadian winter.
3. we've travelled on Cunard, QM2 in the past and enjoyed the luxury and amenities it has to offer.
It's been 4 years since the shipped was refurbished, and while still beautiful, she'showing the wear & tear in some areas ...
We selected this cruise specifically for the stability of the QM2 and Cunard's reported quality. We had never been on a long cruise previously and didn't know if we would even like the experience. In the event, we loved it and have indeed book further world cruises with Cunard for 2020 and 2021. You need to book much earlier than we expected to even get on one of their ships! All Grill Suites for ...
Holiday of a lifetime planned for early in our retirement.
Negatives - health and safety issues.
1) We question the practice of the same member of staff responsible for cleaning the cabin also being responsible for bringing coffee/milk new cups etc to the stateroom.i.e. the steward comes straight from cleaning the bathroom/toilet to delivering new cups/coffee/milk etc. This is not the fault ...
Reading other reviews, it seems that cruisers can be very tribal, “we love P & O, nothing else compares” or “RC is the best by far”. We have written this review with a totally open mind and reported on what was both our personal feelings and what we observed. If people want to either criticise or praise Cunard that is fine with us, as we are all different and have varying expectations from cruise ...
