  3. Queen Mary 2 (QM2)
We only decided on this cruise due to the price. We were not looking for a cruise but this one "appeared" on our email and we could not ignore it. And we are sooo glad we didn't ignore it. Best holiday ever!! If we had stayed at home and ate at a Michelin rated restaurant every night, we would have spent more than the fare for the cruise- and missed out on the other meals, ports of call, entertainment etc etc. Gotta experience it to appreciate it.... what can I tell ya? Apart from the fact that this liner is a mechanical marvel and physically huge in size, it has everything you could want on a holiday. The formality of dress after 6pm may not suit everyone but, there are plenty of cruise ships available for the more casually inclined. QM2 is the only liner in the world and should be appreciated as such. I have read negative reviews of the ship and encountered people during the cruise that had a whinge. Seriously... you will find people everywhere who will complain that the sunrise isn't to their liking, or their Verve Cliquot is half a degree below optimum temperature and you need to ignore them lest you become infected with their misery and snobbery.

Cabin was excellent. Bed was sublime and service was faultless.
