Queen Mary 2 underwhelming

We took the Queen Mary 2 from Southampton to New York the week of June 24 to experience an expected up-scale trip from our usual cruise line. I’m sorry to say we were somewhat disappointed overall. First off, the computer network including the free wifi used to check accounts and book reservations only worked sporadically and for very short periods of time. Even when we went to the purser’s desk ...

We have just returned on the QM2 two-way transatlantic. It was brilliant. I had read negative reviews, but should have just kept an open mind. Perfect, not, but as good as... and life is too short to get too concerned. If something is wrong, bring it up so it can be resolved there and then. The stateroom was great, lots of storage space etc., a fridge was a bonus, lovely food ...

It has now been almost 3 weeks since disembarking from the QM2 and frankly I cannot wait to get back on the ship! Prior to this voyage I had never travelled via ship, I had always taken a flight but in 2019 I decided to try something new and book myself on a cruise ship and having completed extensive research on the subject I decided to do a transatlantic crossing on board the QM2(I know it's ...

I wanted to do a westbound roundtrip transatlantic crossing which was on my bucket list. I come from the city where the original QM was built. I booked a Balcony cabin, sorry stateroom, (obstructed Deck 8) but was given an upgrade to a sheltered balcony on Deck 4. It may be an upgrade for Cunard but it felt like a downgrade to me. Whilst clean and bed very comfortable it was dreary and dull. ...

This was our third Crossing in 5 years on the QM2 and I think this time our eyes were wide open. Our first Crossing (Britannia Club), in 2017, was magical, as first Crossings on the QM2 are. We truly saw everything through rose colored glasses. I think if the ship had sunk entering New York Harbor, we would still have given it a 5-star review. Our second Crossing (Sheltered Balcony), in 2018, was ...

I don't know the words that would be strong enough, to express how dissatisfied and upset we are with this cruise line. The title of this review ("Don't walk, RUN away from Cunard") is not an exaggeration. We have been on many different lines, and were so looking forward to cruising with Cunard. Yet despite the hype around how Cunard is excellent It was our worst experience cruising in over ...

Wedding celebration. Overall we had a very enjoyable trip. The embarkation was tedious due to Covid. The breakfast and lunch were fairly good. The overall impression was that the food was not of such good quality. The coffee and juice were extremely poor quality. Obviously trying to force you into buying coffee from the different bars which were good quality. The service at dinner was lacking. ...

This is my first cruise on QM2 after having lost my dear brother and sister in law within 5 days last year. Started off very well, poor tour in St Thomas but we did get a partial credit. Kings Court Is always very busy struggle to avoid other people when carrying food though the waiters do sometimes assist me if they see me struggling. Our steward was fantastic until he disappeared but was ...

We looked forward to this cruise as it marked my retirement and my wife’s birthday, we had had to save for this one and had handed over our hard earned cash with pleasure we loved being cosseted by Cunard’s attentive staff. This would be the 12th or so cruise and our second 28 night cruise with them. So we knew what to expect. Lovely. We joined the QM2 as scheduled following a Covid test each. ...

What made the trip so special was the friendliness of the crew and the absolute beauty of the interior. The entire ship is done in Art Deco. It is as if you are in a time capsule of the 1920's. There are gold, embossed doors on the elevators. There are beautiful panels on the walls and polished wood everywhere.A three story tapestry commemorating the ship in the Britannia Dining room and the ...
