  3. Queen Mary 2 (QM2)
This was our 50th cruise -- the first on Cunard's QM2. You must include this ship in your plans for a future cruise, it's spectacular. We flew to London (Heathrow) from Toronto and were met by a driver to take us for the 1 hour drive to the port at Southampton. Aboard ship, we toured to acquaint ourselves with all of it's features. 5 days later, we still found things and features we hadn't seen on day one. It has a gorgeous planetarium, the largest dance floor at sea, comfortable theatre and 5 swimming pools. The dinner menu is creative and the seating is either 6 or 8 pm (we prefer NCL's Free Style Dining). We were in cabin 8088 -- very roomy, large bathroom + balcony with an obstructed view (life boats). The ship is equipped with a laundry room. THE COMPLETE COST through Prestige Travel was $3300. FOR TWO and that also included; the flight from Toronto to London, the car transfer from Heathrow and the gratuities were covered by the $175. cabin credit we received. Yes! ... $3300. USD for 2 ... All-In ... Fabulous Value!!!!
