Traveled with children

Check in at Red Hook was a breeze and very well organized. Dropped off and in our cabins witthin an hour. We had two adjoining balconies, very handy in that we had two bathrooms! Our room steward introduced himself immediately and asked if there was anything that he could do for us daily! We ordered our sparkling water , ice and lemons to be delivered daily and they were. He was excellent.

The rooms were very nice standard balcony cabins, similar to any other line. I suppose with all the hype over QM2 we were expecting a bit more, but it was very nice and clean, and clean is what matters. The carpets drapes, and bedspread were worn, but the flat screens were in place. In the adults room we had the beds configured into a Queen, that left a huge uncomfortable lump in the center of the bed. Very surprised that Carnival actually has better bedding than Cunard, by a mile. By the end of our trip I couldn't wait to get to our own bed to get a good nights sleep. Cunard need s to get better mattresses, especially since they specialize in longer voyages.

The Kings Court is the only venue for lunch on embarcation day, so we ventured off. Not the best buffet at sea, very bland, spread out and seemingly confused. Oh well, it served it's purpose. The food on QM2 is about what you would expect from a poor wedding at dinner and very limited during the day, the great part, none of us gained any weight! The service in Brittania Club was perfect, we had Michael and Stephano and they were just great, I wish the food was better, but service was spot on. A few nights one of us would order a steak, they were always cooked properly, but were suce a low grade (select) that they were only occaisionally edible. I would have preferred a smaller portion of a better grade of meat but I am not their chef. We dined at Todd English twice and found the food to be better, service about the same. If we were to go on QM2 again I think we would just dine at Todd English most nights.

Britannia Club Balcony

Cabin AA

Vibrations felt often in 12025 and 12027, occaisionally very annoying. Great balcony, horrible beds.
