Twenty-Seven Days on the QM2

We travelled across the Atlantic, to the Caribbean and back to NYC then back across the Atlantic in November / December. Booking and Boarding We booked a saver fare a long time ago and hence did not have an allocated cabin other than that we were guaranteed a balcony with a sea view. Three days before departure, a cabin allocation silently appeared online in our account with Cunard and later ...

I have always wanted to cross the USA by train, and since Covid, I have lost any appetite I had for flying. The QM2 gave me the opportunity to sail to the US, travel across the US by train both ways, stay a few nights on the West Coast, and pick up the QM2 from New York back to the UK. The time gap between the outward voyage on 13th November and the homeward voyage on the 3rd December - 12 ...

First time on Cunard, and a Trans-Atlantic as well!

This cruise was a bucket list for my DH, as I prefer ports and warmer weather. He had hopes of all things British and the ship did not disappoint. He enjoyed high tea and great conversations with our fellow passengers, many who were from the UK. I enjoyed it as well, especially the Cunard Insight's talks. One speaker was a Forensic Medical Examiner and he was fantastic! Every day, there was a ...

We missed a cruise due to the pandemic so focused on “the future” which finally arrived November 1, 2022. Mister wanted to see the Northern Lights. I wanted to see Norway. Perfect. We booked everything through Cunard, including airport-hotel and (returning) port-airport. This review will also include a subsequent TA Southampton to NY Vacation got off to an inauspicious start as we arrived at ...

A Beautiful Classic Ship

My wife and I have been on cruises with all the major lines. This cruise was magical. First --hats off to Cunard for even adding this itinerary--chasing the Northern Lights in Norway was a gamble. It was spectacular --and we had two ports cancelled as a result of storms. This ship is not a "rust bucket"--it is a beautiful and understated ship with great common areas; great staff; the best ...

I chose this Crossing because it was Cunard's annual Crossing with the British National Orchestra. At Southampton, I stayed on the ship and went to northern Norway and back for another 13 days on the ship. So, I was on board the QM2 for 20 days as a solo traveler. I was in a different stateroom for the Norway portion of my journey. This Crossing with the orchestra was memorable, and I am glad ...

Awful and Appalling Service so far

Had a cruise credit to use up. Was given a promotion to include drinks up to 12 USD for bars and room service. Room service last night refused to service an order for a Diet Coke. Asked the steward. Another refusal. Grills concierge at about 9 am promised a refrigerator supply of the soda. 11 45. No soda. Asked to see food and beverage coordinator. I would have brought on soda (and soap - see ...

Interesting to read other recent reviews - our experiences were very similar. It wasn't a bad cruise and there were highlights - we enjoyed our cabin and the housekeeper was generally good - but otherwise we left thinking that we wouldn't rush back to Cunard. Service was our biggest gripe- Britannia restaurant was very hit and miss - one head waiter actually told me off loudly for sitting at a ...

Reports of QM2’s demise are very premature. It’s not tatty, it’s not falling apart. An odd bit of rust, but the interior looks stunning and in good nick. Sailed Queens Grill so comments may not apply to other cabins. Cabin was lovely. I think PG cabin would be fine next time. The butler and his assistant were fantastic, as was the standard of service everywhere (May be a touch slow in the ...
