Sail Date: Nov 2013

My Husband and I are new to travelling via cruise, and as such we decided we'd try out the shortest cruise we could find. That lead us to booking a last minute deal to join Cunard's QM2 for 2 nights on a sailing to Hamburg.

BOOKING: We phoned to book our cabin and opted to upgrade to a Princess Grill room. The staff on the end of the phone were very helpful, and gave us lots of hints and tips to get the most from our journey.

EMBARKATION: This could not have been simpler or quicker for us. We arrived at shortly after 12pm, our luggage was unloaded from the car we arrived in, and whisked straight away. We walked straight up to a desk, checked in and were shown straight through to the ship. No waiting, no stress. We met our concierge as we boarded and were directed straight to our room. Our luggage was not there when we arrived but it was no surprise as it would have been virtually impossible to get it there before we arrived as we literally walked straight on. We had a lovely bottle of wine and some delicious nibbles waiting for us in our room which we thoroughly enjoyed on our balcony as the ship sailed off.

Cabin Review

We stayed in a Princess Grill cabin and couldn't have been happier. The room was spacious, the bathroom rivalled some of ours at home, the balcony was beautiful and the Princess Grill Restaurant and Queens Grill Lounge were worth the upgrade alone!
