  3. Queen Mary 2 (QM2)
Various friends who had made the transatlantic crossing in the past assured us we would have a fabulous time on the QM2. We didn't. The service in the Britannia restaurant was fine but the food was not anywhere near as good as other cruise lines, Celebrity in particular. Tough steak, erratic portion control......The sommelier (who was efficient and courteous ) obviously had too many tables to look after, we were well into our starters before wine order taken. The Kings Court was not a particularly pleasant experience. Awkward seating and chaotic. In particular the roast stations were memorable in that during the week I never actually saw anything other than scraps of dried up meat. Gave up on breakfast after two visits and used Brittania which was fine. The cabin was kept spotless clean. Comfortable theatre and entertainment good in the main. Anthony Inglis and orchestra gave good Best library ever seen! Nightclub fun. The Red Lion pub was dingy and uninviting, other than the quiz we steered clear. Disappointing lectures. All in all it was just average. Lacking the wow factor - expected something special but sadly it wasn't!

Disappointingly Average
