  3. Queen Mary 2 (QM2)
We paid a huge sum for 18 nights in top Queens Grill class. I found very little in return from Cunard/Carnival. We were not shown to our cabin (we did not know this ship). Except for breakfast the food did not reflect the flowery language of the menu. Food quality was not what I expected.Room service food poor.After we moved tables we were very happy with our waiters and we were also lucky with our cabin stewards. As on many ships staff are from some 60 countries so English language skills are variable. Our QG cabin deck 9 was large enough yet looked ordinary. Our wash basin was cracked and the shower was over the short bath.The double bed was made by pushing two singles together leaving a mattress gap in the middle.TV was very limited with no extra functionality. Balcony cabin doors were hinged not sliding so the slamming noise was frequent. Pools were ordinary. Entertainment cheap mostly, often one man performers. Ships Officers kept a low profile keeping hidden. The June 2016 major refit is vital. We paid a massive ticket price, daily service charge, and 15% drinks service charge on top. Value for money is missing.

Liner? I call it a big ferry.

Big enough but ordinary. Cracked basin, shower over the short bath.
Few TV channels.
Double bed made of two singles pushed together with a crack down the middle.
Our cabin stewards were as good as it gets.
