Queen Mary 2 Worked Hard to Make the Cruise Enjoyable

This was my first cruise on Cunard's QM2, and the 12 day holiday cruise was eagerly anticipated by myself and my travelling companion. We were also part of a larger tour group organized out of NY. And although the ship did experience a number of norovirus cases, no one I knew was affected, and the ship's captain and crew took enormous steps to prevent a further outbreak. As a result, I had a very ...

I booked the Q1 Balmoral Suite on the 2011-12 holiday cruise to be able to finish a writing project without distraction. This suited my purpose perfectly and the voyage was a success. This review is intended to assist those considering one of the better Queens Grill Suites, about which there is relatively little information online. Here are the main points: -QM2 is too large to duplicate the ...

This was our second cruise on the QM2 but the first commencing in New York (Brooklyn) which included flights to and from the UK. Living in Scotland meant a flight down to Heathrow and an overnight stay at the Sheraton Skyline hotel due to the early Virgin flight to JFK (who - be warned - have a 6 Kg limit for carry-ons). We were obviously unable to take our formal kilt outfits (we were traveling ...

My husband and I signed up for Cunard's Christmas/New Year's cruise leaving from Brooklyn, 15 days, to the Caribbean on the Queen Mary 2. It was my husband's first cruise, as I had taken one on Royal Caribbean before to the Mediterranean, and loved it. We had heard that Cunard was one of the best, luxurious cruise lines around. The boarding process was definitely much more complicated than my ...

Some quick observations from our recent trip... This was our second cruise. The first was a trip to Bermuda from NY over ten years ago and we did not like it very much. We booked this trip late after our planned trip to Hawaii did not work out. We did not have super high expectations but liked the fact that the cruise was 15 days and departed from NY. We enjoyed ourselves very much. I don't ...

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 ...

The Queen Mary 2 is a truly gorgeous ship, it was classy and elegant, no brashness, piped music just lovely quiet atmosphere. We were suprised after booking an inside cabin to be upgraded to a Balcony room, we had sparkling wine left with the complements of the captain so this was a great start for our cruise. We loved the room and our first impression of the ship was WOW.. We ...

Holiday Cruise R/T NYC to NYC on the Queen Mary 2. December 19, 2010 to Jan 3rd, 2011 We arrived at the pier around 12:15. Our party is 5 people: My 97-year old father-in-law in a scooter, 2 adults, and kids 6 and 8 years old. We pulled up and immediately gave the longshoreman a $35 tip. We had a ton of stuff (including the heavy scooter) to unpack and we wanted to assure that our stuff all ...

Our first time on the QM2. Boarding was easy and the room was great. Our cabin steward and waiters were absolutely perfect...fun, gracious, and skilled. Elegant decor at every corner of the boat. We enjoyed the formal/semi formal requirements for dinner each evening. As with most ships these days, however, no one questions the folks arriving in jeans and golf shirts on formal nights. ...

Queen Mary 2 November 27th Caribbean Cruise This was our third Caribbean cruise on Queen Mary2 and we were very happy with this trip. We love cruising from NYC because we can drive to the port in about 3 ½. Hours. Traffic on the New Jersey Turnpike was horrible making us arrive at the ship just after 3:00pm. The lines were huge at check in, but the grill check in line was totally empty so ...
