Remastering a disappointment

This was our first cruise since the ship was refitted in late 2016, just after we did the Cape Horn cruise on her. Some things are better like the Stateroom décor, the Carinthia lounge is a great improvement on the Winter Garden. I feel though that the Kings court is a great big miss. The cool white marble type décor is not in synch with the rest of the ship which has a warm colour scheme. With ...

Touring information for New Zealand appalling.

The voyage was bought in August 2017 for a February-March 2018 Sydney to Sydney via NZ, 13 nights. The itinerary date above says Auckland 9 nights, wasn't an option as Auckland was off the itinerary anyway and we had two days in Tauranga instead. I enjoyed the surprise birthday present in January and that followed through with the experience. From the Captain to the waiters and cabin staff, ...

It's The Queen Mary

I thought the Queen Mary would be a luxury cruise. It was not! The food was terrible. Yes, it was fresh, but certainly not restaurant quality. It was VERY English! Thick gravy with everything. The toast for breakfast was uneatable. I requested sourdough or a think a toast slice of wholemeal... neither were available. The fruit was boring. There were no berries, no mango's, no paw paw and ...

Wonderful Cruise

This was our first cruise with Cunard for some years. It did not disappoint. It was part of a World Voyage and our 12 night cruise started in Fremantle and ended in Sydney. We flew to Perth from Manchester (3 flights). It was a long journey. We added 2 nights stay in hotels at both Perth and Sydney respectively. When we arrived at Fremantle Port the check in for the Queen Mary 2 was a breeze. We ...

My wife and I have just returned from the first two and a half legs of a QM2 world cruise. We were both in excellent health when we boarded this vessel but are now both suffering from coughs which we caught on QM2. I started coughing on 6th day of a 39 day cruise and although I paid to see the ships doctor the best he could do was offer a cough medicine, In Cape Town we did manage to get ...

Perfect Ocean Liner Cruising

I enjoy the short coastal cruises offered by Cunard. They allow me to escape from my otherwise busy schedule. The uncrowded feel of an ocean liner rather than the glitz of a cruise ship is the most appealing aspect of the Cunard offering. Activities such as movies, lectures and deck sports are well conducted and schediled so that all can participate. Dining in the Britannia restaurant is ...

Cunard was the only shipping line I considered. Reason being, that the choice was about the class and quality of the ship and its services, what a misguided perception. Sadly Cunard no longer represent either their own publicity nor their past. Verve afternoon tea was a no show with no prior notice. Normal afternoon tea on Queens Room was a sad affair of bland slightly stale sandwiches, scones ...

Coastal cruise Sydney - Tasmania - Return

Always wanted to cruise on Queen Mary 2 and experience the legend, Cunard and the past splendour of a transatlantic ocean liner. It was also my first cruise. Sailing from Sydney to Tasmania - return seemed a good way to enjoy this experience. The QM2 sailed from Sydney to Port Arthur, Hobart and return to Sydney. From the moment you board QM2, you are taken to a past luxury and the best of ...

My husband and I chose this Cunard cruise as it afforded us the opportunity to try a voyage on a cruise liner which is world renowned. Embarkation and disembarkation went extremely smoothly. All staff polite and professional. We had a Club Balcony Cabin (oops Stateroom), but reading the other reviews probably should have aimed higher to get the "true" Cunard experience. The cabin was clean ...

Tasmania Coastal in Queens Grill

The opportunity to travel on QM2 was too good to pass up and the 5 night itinerary afforded me the opportunity to travel in a Queens Grill suite. The itinerary was a round trip from Sydney, visiting Port Arthur and Hobart. Embarkation was at Sydney's overseas passenger terminal at Circular Quay and went smoothly, but there was nothing special as far as Queens Grill privileges was concerned ...
