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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 Sadly Cunard no longer represent either their own publicity nor their past.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 ...

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 ...

We did one month section of a three month cruise commencing in Sydney. This cruise was more suited to 75+ age group therefore as a very young at heart 60s couple we found it a bit dull compared to previous cruises with P&O. Unfortunately there were several deaths during our cruise. The entertainment was not to our taste and the resident cunard singers and dancers were dire. The kings court ...

Well, i would normally not write a review for such a short cruise on such a well know ship, but feel i must after whats been said lately. This trip was for a birthday present for some one who has never been on QM2. The three of us arrived at the dock early, due to the flight from home and checked in our bags at 11am, we were escorted with help, due to one of us being in a wheelchair up stairs to ...
