Sail Date: Jul 2012
Cabin: Oceanview
Traveled with children

Myself, my daughter and two grandchildren of 6 and 9 left Southampton for the back to back transatlantic crossing to New York on the beautiful QM2. It is the second time we have sailed as a family on her. I opted for an oceanview cabin for four people and we had a much larger space than the previous year when we had an inside. The upper bunks were full sized, so the children had plenty of room and headspace, and in the daytime when the steward pushed them back up it was a spacious cabin with a small sofa as well as an easy chair.

The bathroom had only a shower, but, being British we are used to much smaller facilities, and so we none of us felt that the shower and loo were a great deal smaller than home!

Our steward was great, the cabin was kept as tidy and clean as was possible with two small children and a host of toys and books for a 14 day cruise. This back to back meant that the children came free, which is a fantastic deal from Cunard, and was indeed the same last year when we did the New England and Canada cruise. This, and only this feature made it possible for me to take my family away on a cruise.
