"In times when we are also still trying to be careful of covid, especially in the close quarters that the ship brings, we felt that less people touching glasses and moving them would be better.Then there were the sommeliers, I have read some people lament that a ship has no sommeliers anymore, but when many folk have a drinks package and the choice of wine is limited by that, we noted, and were amused by the number of times the sommeliers walked around with just glasses, taking them here and there...."Read More
1-10 of 49 Asia Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Asia Cruise Reviews
Cabin review is below.
Been on more than 10 cruises e.g. Celebrity, Princess, NCL, Costa, etc.
Bottom line it is old and shows it. The ship itself if not impressive. Worse yet was staff. It seems like they was no synergy and each person acted on their own with little regard to customer service.
At embarkation waited and given a color. Rows of seats. Once called e.g. red, person ...
We have done many cruises with mainly Princess (but also NCL, MSC, Costa, HAL) and thought we would try some other cruise lines. This cruise fitted a way of going to the far east without the long flight to begin with, as we set off from Dubai.
We chose a sheltered cabin and were quite happy with that (although the sheltered cabins on HAL Westerdam (our follow on cruise from Singapore) were much ...
We took a cruise from Singapore to Dubai, on part of the QM2 around the world trip. The cabin with sheltered balcony was great and we had an ice bucket with champagne waiting for us when we embarked. The ship is beautiful and the staff were helpful and efficient. The negatives for me were firstly the standard of food in the Britannia Restaurant which we were assigned to. The food was generally not ...
Although very experienced travellers (88 and 80) we had never done a cruise so decided on a 10 day one on the QM2 from Shanghai to Hong Kong via Japan and South Korea.
Embarkation was efficient and we were on board early enough to have a snack and a coffee in the impressive Carinthia Lounge before returning to our cabin (Cunard prefer to call it a stateroom but that I think is pretentious). Our ...
We started as a cruise of a lifetime and ended as a demotivated disaster.
This once great international liner is now a British floating holiday park,
There is a ghost like senior management team only ever to be seen fraternising with Grills guests and drinking wine. With the distinct exception of Captain Wells who seems now to do the job of Cruise Director and Hotel Manager as well as his ...
Here is our review of the recent 14 day Hong Kong to Hong Kong segment of the QM2 World Voyage from 19 February to 5th March 2019, plus pre and post cruise information.
As background we are in our 50s and 60s, my husband has been retired for a year, we are originally from the UK and have lived in Maryland USA for the past 30 years. We have predominantly cruised on Celebrity, but recently have ...
Never having done a cruise before we chose the Queen Mary because we wanted luxury.
We certainly got that. We had a Princess Grill suite and loved the dining experience that we got with it. Every meal was superb and the waiting staff were so friendly and very professional. We chose to sit on a large table with six other diners and found them to be great company. Each meal was leisurely and ...
We cruised recently on the Queen Mary 2 from Dubai to Hong Kong
Queen Mary 2 is a transatlantic ocean liner. She is the largest ocean liner ever built, having served as the flagship of the Cunard Line since succeeding the Queen Elizabeth 2 in 2004. As of 2019, Queen Mary 2 is the only passenger ship operating as an ocean liner.
A key point is that the Queen Mary as a liner travels the ...
Excellent for special diets ie lactose free gluten free etc
Good standard of food overall
No where to eat outside. Very disappointing
Kings court food area feels like motorway service station
Main Sunbathing decks obscured by lifeboats
Entertainment in the main theatre generally good
Embarkation procedure in Dubai was a nightmare. Disorganised. Took 7 ...
After enjoying a wonderful cruise on the Queen Mary 2 in 2010 our special anniversary cruise on the QM2 was a huge disappointment and we wanted to get off 4 days into a 14 day cruise! We had more complaints about the cruise but the 3 major areas that Cunard need to address urgently are:
Food, Cleanliness, Attitude towards passengers
FOOD. This was really shocking especially in the King’s ...
