Fantastic Queen Mary 2

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Other
From the moment we saw the Queen Mary 2 for the first time, we knew we were in for something special.

As we've never cruised before, we didn't really know what to expect, but check in was very well organised - although we were expecting for there to at least be a Newsagent or something in the Cruise Terminal at Southampton.

Boarding the ship and entering via the Grand Lobby was quite an experience in itself. We quickly found our room which was a Britannia Balcony on Deck 8. The room was very clean and tidy. Our steward, John came and introduced himself and he was a genuinely nice chap.

First experience of Food was at the Kings Court Buffet which was busy, but the quality and variety was good.

As for the main Britannia Restaurant, I've read that some people were disappointed with it, and I had to wonder whether we were in the same Britannia Restaurant, as the experience was astonishing. From the decor to the excellent service we got from Rose, Ovi & More Michael down to the food which we all thought was absolutely superb. My steak in particular was better than one I had at Marco Pierre White's a few weeks ago.

Drinks wise, We tried everywhere! Commodore Club was lovely - as are the views. Sir Samuels, The Chart Room & The Golden Lion. Only gripe was not being able to find anywhere to sit in any of them on the last night.

Entertainment wise - in the Theatre, we saw Romeo & Juliet, Appassionata and a Birmingham Born Singer from The Lion King. All very good. Also saw Prometheus in 3D in Illuminations.

Could not recommend Cunard & The QM2 highly enough & we can't wait to go again! Less
