Around the world in 80 years: Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Cruise Review by burchan
Overall Member Rating
Around the world in 80 years
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Food in Kings Court was of good quality and variety served on Wedgwood china instead unbreakable plates as is on other ships. Evening are for dressing for dinner and dance. It is time for More people watching and it is nice. I most like that service charge is automatically added to account and there is no need to think about it any more. I always found it embarrassing to be distributing little envelopes on the last day. In England we drove to Bath and Windsor. Oakley Court hotel in Windsor was absolute highlight of the trip. We have stayed in many fine hotels on our travels but this hotel was amazing. On the last day we stayed at Ibis hotel in Southampton which was walking distance to car rental office. On Eastbound crossing we had A1 grade balcony stateroom on 11th level and on our return it was in grade B1 in hull stateroom on 6th level. It is nice to have extra light but it was to cold to get any use of balcony. Cruise on QM2 was the best cruise that we ever took. We are glad that we did it. One negative: Sea card represent the only personal link to the cruise that we took and it was taken from us on disembarking. This is the only Sea card that is missing from my wast collection. I was so disappointed by this. Less
