We've cruised twice on the Queen Victoria and loved the old world elegance and charm. Dancing in the big ballroom was a delight, and the Britannia Dining Room had delicious food served with flair. What a surprise to find out that where the Queen Victoria excelled, the Queen Mary 2 fell short.

Among the many things that disappointed us, the first one was the floor plan. Who ever heard of having to go down some stairs, cut through the art gallery, go up some stairs to finally arrive in the ballroom? The shortcut we found (much to the dismay of the waiters) was to detour through the 2nd floor of the restaurant. The orchestra and singers were very good, but the dance floor was really too small to accommodate the number of passengers who wanted to dance. The Queen Victoria dance floor is considerably larger and they carry less passengers so the experience is much better,

Hidden away in a corner on Deck 8 amid an entire floor of cabins, and only open for limited hours each day, QM2's library was a big disappointment.
