  3. Queen Mary 2 (QM2)
The whole cruise was great, although weather not perfect but that is no ones fault, our only complaints were the cost of the alcohol on board, wine is extortionate so hardly anyone on our table of 8 purchased wine at dinner, in 22 nights we bought 3 bottles of wine, The only other minor complaint was the lack of choice at dinner in the Britannia Restaurant, too many vegetarian options on not enough meat or fish dishes. The Kings Court buffet restaurant offered the best food we have ever experienced on a cruise but we do not like eating dinner in a buffet, or any other meal really but on this ship we did eat there more often because the choice of food was amazing. Our embarkation in Cape Town was chaotic to say the least as the computers were not working but we did not have to wait too long to enter the lounge where we had to wait to board but others had waited more that an hour or so to do so. We definitely think the Queen Mary is the best ship we have ever been on, before we have cruised with P & O and Holland America, the level of service and attention to detail was very good.

Did not drink a lot of alcohol
