  3. Queen Mary 2 (QM2)
Embarkation was quick and easy. Our room was ready and was overall impressed with the efficiency. Although this ship has recently undergone a remastering and will always be the Icon of the Seas - we still found it tired looking. I am not sure what the remastering included - but we had a 2 year old Daily Itinerary stuck between the artwork on the wall above our bed to stop it rattling. Evidently - they don't dust picture frames. The food in the Kings Court is akin to Luby's Cafeteria. Some days its ok - other days it looks remarkably like last night/this mornings left overs. Not at all impressed. The addition of the Godiva Lounge was our saving grace - the stodgy treacle pudding and vanilla sauce (custard that wasn't thick enough.........) was way too much for us on a hot sunny day on the ocean. So we took ourselves to Godiva for something cooler and more refreshing. The Lion pub is the Lion pub. Doesn't quite make it as a pub - but it is a nice place to meet people and while away on evening and the hostess "in charge" of introducing the entertainment did a wonderful job of keeping everyone engaged in a fun way - without demanding that everyone get involved. All in all, sad to say - we use the QMll as a means to get to England without jet lag and nothing more.

A great place to find and read a book a day!!
