  3. Queen Mary 2 (QM2)
This was a bucket list trip for us and we were not disappointed. We had a balcony cabin on the 8th deck and dined at the Kings Court buffet for breakfast, the Corinthia lounge for a light lunch and the main Britannia dining room at night. We had a smooth sailing and every day enjoyed doing some rounds of the promenade deck on 7 for some exercise. The guest lecturers were varied and very interesting and the evening entertainment was very good. There were many classes and group activities to choose from such as ballroom dancing, art classes, bridge, trivia, book clubs and the fitness centre and spa were excellent. The afternoon tea is a must on at least one occasion and I happily went without lunch twice in order to enjoy this special treat in the Queens Room - complete with silver service, music and delicious food and tea.

Absolutely fantastic transatlantic cruise from NYC to Southampton

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BC 8125
A roomy balcony cabin and having the balcony windows/doors made the cabin seem bigger - we were glad of the natural light as well. Nice to be able to leave the balcony door open slightly for some fresh air. Very comfortable bed and bedding and roomy bathroom - always lots of hot water. Great cabin service. We did not hear any noise from cabins around us or above us. Plenty of storage space. We hardly turned the TV on so as to get away from the world news for a change - but the TV had a lot of channels and current movies and programs for children.
