A Solid Product, definitely not Luxury ship

Review for Queen Mary 2 (QM2) to Transatlantic

This was our 17th cruise, second on the QM2 and first Transatlantic crossing. Executive summary: Cunard offers a solid product, comparable with other mass market lines like Celebrity, but definitely not a luxury experience. Outstanding entertainment, mediocre food, decent service, terrible embarkation experience and almost unusable internet. Overall, pretty much in line with our ...

Embarkation at new York was a nightmare staff faffing around not having a clue what they were doing approx 2 hrs of queing only to line up to queue again. Ship looks dull and dated not at all glamourous like going into an English town hall back in 1950 Food in main resturant was ok nothing special imo Food in buffet was good choice and better quality although the constant masks on/off ...

I've sailed on Cunard many times and QM2 is a favorite ship, as is the crossing. An offer that was too good to pass up arrived in my in-box (for a single cabin!!) and I booked this crossing one month before departure. Embarkation in Brooklyn was very quick for me (on the ship 30 minutes after arriving at the terminal). This is why I was able to get through quickly: I read all the directions ...

Review for Viking Octantis to Canada & New England

This was the first repositioning cruise for the Octantis and it was the first cruise ship to traverse the St. Lawrence Seaway is several years (due to Covid restrictions). The ship is a gem, hints of its bigger ocean Viking ships but also many different aspects. Food was as expected from Viking's ocean ships - the World Cafe was outstanding along with the many options - Mamsen's and the Grill. ...

Canadian Discovery Tour - TOTALLY FALSE ADVERTISING!!!

We book and paid for an expedition cruise and received less than a repositioning cruise. We book the cruise over 2 years ago at which time Viking advised that most of the tours were included in our fare. Then 30 days before the cruise, Viking was charging for the tours that we had wanted and others they had simply cancelled. Totally false advertising. Viking either has no clue what expedition ...

Good, Not Great

Having enjoyed our first roundtrip Transatlantic on QM2 back in 2018, we did the same sailing this year. In comparison, the experience in some regards were equal to that of our prior cruise (service and room primarily) though in some cases (food and entertainment) we saw some definite decline unfortunately. So let's begin our journey: Embarkation: in a word "Poor". Of course in this ...

Here are my thoughts on our April 2022 Brooklyn to Southampton crossing on the QM2: The Good We enjoyed plenty of wine (via the beverage package) brought by plenty of friendly servers; The King's Court Buffet's pizza, hot-dogs and hamburgers were tasty for lunch; The afternoon teas (photo attached) were novel fun; The pre-dinner hot hors d'oeuvres in the Chart Room and the ...

Cunard put the health of guests and crew as the first priority.

COVID-19 has disrupted all cruises and cruise lines, even those that are COVID-19 free. Cunard’s QM2 is no exception. We missed ports. The voyage was cancelled very early in Fremantle, Australia. We remained COVID-19 free. However, in spite of the (early on) wishes of us passengers, Cunard always put the health of the passengers and the crew first. We all know that cruise liners are not all ...

A Terrible and Expensive Disappointment

Review for Queen Mary 2 (QM2) to Caribbean - Eastern

Our 5th cruise on the QM2 and possibly our 40th cruise overall. The Queen has clearly lost her crown. The ship is aging and needs refurbishing. Seating in the Illuminations theater needs to be fixed so they stay upright, need to be reupholstered; the public areas need to be kept free of detritus and stray bits of food and/or personal effects; the food in the main dining room was absolutely ...
