Awful and Appalling Service so far

Had a cruise credit to use up. Was given a promotion to include drinks up to 12 USD for bars and room service. Room service last night refused to service an order for a Diet Coke. Asked the steward. Another refusal. Grills concierge at about 9 am promised a refrigerator supply of the soda. 11 45. No soda. Asked to see food and beverage coordinator. I would have brought on soda (and soap - see ...

I think this was my last Cunard voyage.

I chose this Crossing because it was Cunard's annual Crossing with the British National Orchestra. At Southampton, I stayed on the ship and went to northern Norway and back for another 13 days on the ship. So, I was on board the QM2 for 20 days as a solo traveler. I was in a different stateroom for the Norway portion of my journey. This Crossing with the orchestra was memorable, and I am glad ...

Summary first: In short, we had value for money even with the added cost of the Premium package as we could drink proper champagne and ‘Whispering Angel’ Cotes de Provence rose wine throughout the voyage. There were some positives but also negatives with this cruise such that we wouldn’t book a Princess cruise again. The cabin was excellent (mini suite) with a very good layout having the sofa ...

QM 2 is a wonderful ship. It is very nautical and has a large number of venues in which to eat, dance, drink or listen to music. The activities on this crossing which focused on art and design were very good. The entertainment in the main showroom was fair. The food is commparable to most mid to upper tier ships which is good but not great. The pub had good food and an excellent irish duo ...

Okay, first things first - the very worst embarkation experience in 40 years of cruising. Brooklyn's Red Hook terminal is small, over-crowds easily, and was understaffed. We stood on line for two solid hours. Horrible. Regarding my title, please leave behind any ideas of 21st century cruising. Cunard is firmly rooted in a prior age - and that is good and bad - depending on expectations. ...

Why so many complaints? If you don’t want to see any signs of rust and wear, go on a brand new cruise ship! This ship is 18 years old and they were constantly painting and repairing everywhere during our cruise. Many of the areas have new carpet, new furniture and the ship was spotless in all the bathrooms, common areas and restaurants. I think some cruisers got a little spoiled pre-pandemic ...

Our best voyage ever, though not a normal journey

We traveled August 5-28 on the Queen Mary 2, round trip from New York stopping at Southampton, Hamburg, Zeebrugge, Rotterdam, Hamburg, and Southampton. As a result of having 3 or 4 cancelled trips in 2020 and 2021 (and resulting FCC), we splurged on a Queens Grill Penthouse (we’ve previously traveled in both Princess Grill and Britannia). This was not a ‘normal’ shipboard experience for us as we ...

Hello all, although we are only returned from our trip a couple of days and still catching up on life, I thought I should get something on the boards based on the recent conversation about no comments from Britannia passengers. A short bit about us, husband and I are 62 and 57, retired, live in the Sarasota/Bradenton area of Florida. We take 4-6 international trips per year, and travel by ...

We had high hopes going into this crossing that were repeatedly undermined by reading reviews characterizing the ship as decrepit, the atmosphere as stifling, and the dress code as arcane and draconian. Luckily, our high hopes were realized and our doubts unfounded. We loved the slightly old-fashioned feel of the ship and its passengers. The interiors are comfortable, lived in, and attractive. ...
