  • Destination: Transatlantic

Fourth time in my life to cross the Atlantic on Cunard and the best. Firstly, the Queen Mary 2 is so large and extremely stable compared to the Queen Elizabeth 2. Despite some heavy North Atlantic swells on the fourth day one had to look to believe we were on a ship! The new single stateroom on deck three (only six rooms, Iwould prefer over a balcony room any day. What mAkes them especially attractive is that only these six afternoons are placed parallel to the ship so the bed is placed either facing the bow or stern and it means the room has two very large oval Windows each with a window seat. The statehood therefore is and feels spacious and is very bright...one has a great view of the ocean. But another wonderful plus is that there is no need to take an elevator to dinner in the Britannia restaurant or to walk to the theatres, the three bars on this floor or the shops or Purser's Office and only one flight down to the British pub and other entertainments. The short private corridor outside these six cabins ensures both privacy and quietness. Our room steward was outstanding (I had to tell him no need to change the towel in my bathroom just because I used it once! And the bathroom itself..incredible ..much larger and luxurious compared to so many cruise ship double balcony cabins. A shower with an excellent rain shower faucet and double glass doors..big enough for two persons. Because the bed was positioned facing the bow alongside the corridor wall the room had a six foot dressing table with fridge and drawers and the entire space between the two large oval Windows was mirror adding to the spaciousness feeling of the stateroom. Another wonderful feature was that suitcases easily slipped under the bed and there was more cupboard space than could be used. Lastly besides the very comfortable double bed (more than sufficient for one person) the stateroom had a very comfortable easy chair and footstool. Unfortunately as I spend no more time than necessary in my room alone I never did sit and relax in that easy chair!! What a pleasure to simply leave my room exit the corridor in front of model of the ship and life-size painting of Her Majesty and,Prince Philip, walk up six carpeted steps and enter the Queen Mary room for afternoon tea!

Cabin Review

Cabin Single Britannia third deck 3012

See review above...nothing more to add. Costs more than an inside single but worth more than cost of a standard cabin with private small deck....and on the North Atlantic nothing to see but grey swells....
