Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Cruise Review by JoeHaligonian
- Sail Date: December 2018
- Destination: Transatlantic
- Cabin Type: Balcony
Ship: She is a beautiful ship, her public spaces are spacious and the art deco decor is nostalgic and hearkens back to the golden age of ocean liners. You never feel that there are too many people on board
Fellow passengers: sociable and friendly, no major issues
Cabin: The cabins show a bit of wear, especially in the bathroom
Dining: I felt there was a lot of pork this year, I felt in past years there were more beef options.
Activities: Afternoon tea: always a classic event on board QM2. It happens daily and great afternoon activity
Fitness opportunities: The gym isn't particularly big but if you enjoy running, running on the promenade deck is always enjoyable.
Entertainment: Cunard Insights (Lectures): very good, a lot of interesting lecturers and topics, always something I look forward to attending while on board / Evening Entertainment: like always, nothing spectacular, but Cunard is not known for their singing/dancing shows.
Service: Service on board was good. I've gotten to know a few of the crew, and have my "favourite" bartender that has served me on all my QM2 voyages.
Port/Shore Excursions: N/A since this was a transatlantic crossing.
Value: As a luxury cruise, it is not the cheapest cruise but I enjoyed my time on board and I didn't splurge this year or try to hold back either.
Would I go again: At the end of the voyage, I didn't think I wanted to do another transatlantic crossing in QM2 again since I felt I had done all that I could on board, however, given that I'm booked to do another QM2 transatlantic crossing in August 2019, I guess I really enjoy my time on board.
