We had always wanted to do an eastbound transatlantic cruise and arrive without being jet lagged! The ship was unlike any we had previously been on, being slightly differently organised. It was uniformly excellent. We were not in any ... Read more

This was our 4th crossing on QM2 but our first roundtrip so we wondered if we would get fed up being onboard for 15 nights. I'm pleased to report we didn't, it was the most relaxing trip so far despite less than brilliant weather and a few ... Read more

I'd always loved the romance of the old ocean liners and it was a bucket list item for me to do a transatlantic crossing on the last of the real ocean liners, QM2. I treated myself to this trip after a very difficult few years in my life ... Read more

We wanted to experience their 'iconic' transatlantic crossing so we booked a back to back crossing. Had it not been for the experience of storm conditions, 15m waves and the unexpected rescue of a lone yachtsman the westbound crossing ... Read more

Embarkation at Southampton was well organised and less time consuming than expected - much less hassle than any airport! Entry to the ship brings one into the Grand Lobby and there are well placed deck guides , good stairways, and elegant ... Read more

We've crossed the Atlantic on the QM2 a bunch of times, but this time was memorable because of the rescue at sea of a yachtsman from a disabled craft. We watched from our balcony, and then learned from a Q & A session between the ... Read more

I thought I would share with others my first-hand experience of being a newbie voyager. Firstly, you will note that I use the word “voyager” in lieu of cruiser the reason being is the trans-atlantic crossing is a voyage and not ... Read more

Cabin 10133 on Cunard Queen Mary to ship travelling out on 24 May for two nights. We stayed in a penthouse suite. The suite was quite nice but there was certainly no butler service. Just a room steward whom we saw a couple of times if ... Read more

Home again. Ahhhhhh. Last May, we did a westbound crossing on the QM2, our third voyage and second crossing aboard her. It was so perfect for us that we decided to do it again this year, except as a round trip. (spoiler – We ... Read more

My wife i have had eight prior cruises, with the most recent two on Holland America. For this cruise, we wanted a trans-ocean cruise on a ship with dance floor, as we are social ballroom dancers. We also wanted a ship which looked and felt ... Read more

We wanted to do a transatlantic crossing on a real ocean liner and the QM2 is probably the only benchmark for that kind of travel. The passengers were dominated by the average age well north of late 60's; 40% Brit 40% US. Overall, ... Read more

I don't like to fly was the main reason for taking this cruise. getting on and off the ship was a nightmare. 2500 people and it took hours for the process. We are used to 5000 people and have it take half the time. Maybe if they pulled ... Read more
