Review for Queen Mary 2 (QM2) to Baltic Sea

My first impressions began with late lunch on embarkation day in Kings Court. Dodging employees with food carts, they didn’t give way for guests - to the point of being dangerous. Good food selections available, although meat over cooked to toughness. First day party impressive poolside and music was excellent as we watched NYC fade away. Our eight-person seating companions at dinner each ...

We were on QM2 for the 21-day roundtrip cruise from NYC to Norway. This was our first voyage back on QM2 since the refit. She received a very nice face-lift along with improvements in food and cabins. (A few quibbles will be noted) Top 5 things both husband & I liked: Food across the venues was very good to fantastic. Party band (Purple Haze) played fun mix of funky Motown, disco and ...

Transatlantic Solo

I choose a transatlantic cruise onboard the magnificent QM2 which departed New York in mid June. I was looking for a complete break after a particularly hectic period and couldn’t have imagined how thoroughly revitalising the experience would end up being. I travelled solo and was amazed at the sheer quantity and variety of things to do - along with the choice to do as much or as little as you ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

35th anniversary, wanted to get to some highlights in northern Europe - first cruise (and most likely last ever) My wife rolled her ankle the day of the cruise and was experiencing some discomfort so we went to the medical services on the ship. There was a couple there before us, the wife looked like death warmed over and we listened to them fill out a form of where they ate over the last 3 ...

A bit of background. We have sailed (cruised) with at least 8 different lines over the past 24 years, have taken short 3 day and two trans-Atlantic trips, and stayed in insides to suites. I only offer this because I didn't believe this trans-Atlantic cruise could turn out so poorly. Pros were entertainment, cruise director and his activities, ship layout, venues for eating and/or drinking were ...

Terrible food, poor service, scary virus, closed facilities, no communication

FIrst it’s interesting not to see a lot more comments since there were Cruise Critic Members on board. Unless you had Specialty dining the food was fair to poor. A comment by a staff member in one specialty restaurant even said, “yes, we should teach them how to cook”! Even one of the specialty restaurants was so bad that our friends cancelled a dinner. The restaurant service was poor, very ...

From the min. We boarded to the time we departed all we did was try and not get sick . We did not want to miss the different ports of call , We ended up mostly staying in our cabin except to go on the excursions and eat. What a waste of getting to know and see the ship . Generally we ate only in the Resturant’s for our meals . We stayed away from buffet in fear of catching the virus ...

THE WORST CRUISE I HAVE TAKEN!

This was an itinerary that I really wanted o do. The price seemed right, but that was the last thing that went well. I had a little stomach upset on the first day, Went to the medical office to buy some Imodium. (they do not sell it in the gift shop) They refused to sell it to me unless I had an 'exam' from the ship's doctor. I was charged $216 for a 10 pack. The false medical report that ...

We chose this cruise so that my veteran husband could visit Normandy and the American Cemetary. Flew into NYC day before cruise. Embarkation was exhausting. Long lines. Ditto didembarkation. We loved our balcony cabin! Comfy bed and fresh bedding everyday. Kudos to Yu!!! Def didnt pack the right clothes! We needed warmer things incl jackets and sweaters. Even gloves! Cold and rainy and stormy ...

I chose the cruise for the itinerary. I was traveling with my 80 year old mother and we really liked the ports. Both of us are well traveled but never could we have expected such a disaster of a cruise. I can let the terrible weather not bother me. Or even find fun in the 50 mPH winds with 30degree F wind chill. That’s Mother Nature and what can you do. Since we didn’t get sea sick it was ...
