Sail Date: Apr 2012
Cabin: Balcony, obstructed view

Having been on several cruises and already sailing on the QE and QV, my sister and I were looking forward our experience on the QM2. We always have our own cabins - this comes at a price but we both loike our own space. To be honest, I think the cabins on all of these ships would be a little too cosy for two people! We got this cruise, tail end of the World Cruise - Dubai to Southampton at a bargain price, an obstructed view balcony cabin each. Cabin was great, had a lifeboat either side of the balcony with a view out to sea in the middle. Absolutely fine. The ship was immaculate and spotlessly clean, the public areas and my cabin was kept really clean by Eddie.

Sadly, the ship is let down by its entertainment - or lack of. Very cheesy acts, surely Cunard could come up with something professional? or even a big name act? The G32 nightclub is a real let down - no comaprison to the ones on QV and QE which are really classy. This G32 looks like an afterthought, very uninviting so consequently hardly used. The DJ is dreadful, it's saving grace is the marvellous band Vibz who play in there most evening. If you have late sitting dinner then you have to wait until 11.30 for them to appear, the trouble is there is little going on until then. I'm not into karioke, bingo or cheesy entertainment.

The Chart room is a lovely bar for pre dinner drinks and afterwards - there is a jazz band that plays later and they're quite good.

Cabin Review

Balcony, obstructed view

Cabin DA

Good size for one, wouldn't like to share it as my clothes filled the wardrobes! Hanging space for long dresses not longe enough so they fold over at the hem. Bed really comfortable as all Cunard ships. Dislike the plastic shower curtain, but shower better size than QE & QV. Obstructed balacony but pretty good as had a view between the lifeboats. Quiet cabin. No complaints
