In this review I want to distinguish between the ship, which we dearly love, and Cunard's service, for which I have only limited love. After about a dozen trips on Cunard (we are Diamond status), and after over 18 months of cancelled and altered holidays, we were eager to return to the QM2. This is a special ship, the last true ocean liner, which is built to comfortably navigate the high seas. ...

I have sailed on QM2 previously and enjoyed it sufficiently to book my present cruise; the Christmas and New Year cruise which departed Southampton on 13 December 2021. The Covid testing and boarding process at Southampton was tediously long. I do not use a smartphone and thus had to register at a desk where my result would be sent. After more than an hour had elapsed since registration, I ...

Promoted by Imagine cruising 12 Night cruise taking in Lizbon,Cadiz and the canaries we booked especially to see the top headliners Russell Watson Jimmy Tarbuck and Lulu. new regulations due to Covid meant a long queue to be tested before embarking and a wait in reception until you were pinged on your phone to get on board. The ship was immaculate decorated for Christmas and spotless ...

We saw this cruise advertised by Imagine cruising who had chartered Queen Mary after covid restrictions forced her scheduled restart to be delayed. We were keen to sail again and the thought of some winter sun was enticing. Pre sailing the online form filling was tedious and the arrival of a new variant of covid and subsequent media noise created more of it and raised stress levels. On the ...

1st cruise after 600+ days of pause - excellent!

We saw this 3 night cruise advertised at a very good price as it was the first cruise the ship was to make after 600+ days of ‘pause’. We realised that there could be problems but in fact they were very few. We booked cabin 10054. This was a Princess Grill grade cabin. We had previously crossed the Atlantic twice in a PG cabin - although it was 10 years ago. We were asked to check in at ...

We choose this itinerary because it sailed to Asia where we've never been. The timing (end of January, 2020 to February 2020) was perfect. We'd never been on Cunard even though we've cruised many times. We chose this line as we'd heard wonderful things about it. We were pleased with the ship, her amenities, the service and entertainment. We had an auspicious start in Dubai with easy embarkation. ...

Some cabin issues but a brilliant trip

I love the QM2 - it really is unique amongst all the ships I've sailed on. What I particularly like is the fact that it never feels crowded, and the passengers tend to be a mix of nationalities. After my experiences with 4009 (see below) I was moved to 6026 This cabin has a porthole and is towards the very front of the ship. I thought it was perfect. There can be some noise issues with the ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
