Review for Queen Mary 2 (QM2) to Transatlantic

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. ...

Queen Mary 2 underwhelming

We took the Queen Mary 2 from Southampton to New York the week of June 24 to experience an expected up-scale trip from our usual cruise line. I’m sorry to say we were somewhat disappointed overall. First off, the computer network including the free wifi used to check accounts and book reservations only worked sporadically and for very short periods of time. Even when we went to the purser’s desk ...

Lots of Problems; Will We be Back?

We have always said that we love the crossings and love the QM2. Indeed we have crossed the Atlantic about 13 times on the QM2. But the serious issues with this crossing make us wonder if we are making a poor choice and whether we will ever return. We did love the Chart Room and spent many hours there listening to delightful music and receiving excellent service. But hours spent in one bar ...

Not a Baltic but Transatlantic

Review for Norwegian Getaway to Transatlantic

The 14/06/22 departure was not a Baltic cruise but a 13 nights repositioning cruise from Copenhagen to Port Canaveral. On arrival at Copenhagen Airport I was surprised by the very well organised Norwegian meet and greet. It took about one hour before they started transportation to the ship. Some people got nervous, expected huge lines at check in, and preferred to take a taxi. There was no ...

We chose this cruise mostly because we had to get from NY to Hamburg. We thought it would be a good alternative to flying, as we are both retired and have plenty of time. We enjoy cruising and have done over 50 cruises on various lines (Holland America is our favorite, especially for crossings). It was our first time with Cunard. 1. The ship is old and tired. A real rust bucket (even ...

A crossing on the QM2 is an experience worth preserving

This was my third crossing on QM2 and my sixth crossing overall, all of them on Cunard. Sadly this trip began with a badly botched boarding process in the Brooklyn with everyone (nearly all unmasked) jammed into a long multi-hour boarding line which tested the physical endurance of all, especially the most vulnerable. Cunard blamed it on a Coast Guard inspection. Once onboard, however, things ...

We have just returned on the QM2 two-way transatlantic. It was brilliant. I had read negative reviews, but should have just kept an open mind. Perfect, not, but as good as... and life is too short to get too concerned. If something is wrong, bring it up so it can be resolved there and then. The stateroom was great, lots of storage space etc., a fridge was a bonus, lovely food ...

Wanted to do another Transatlantic with two couples that have not been. Overall enjoyed the cruise but the experience with COVID onboard with 300-400 coming down with it put a damper on some activities and put the deflector shields up. Embarkation - What a breeze with the medallion in Fort Lauderdale, stayed at next door at the Marina Hilton arriving two days early. Took all of 10 ...

Iceland was on my bucket list. I also liked the Ireland (Cork) and Scottish (Shetland) ports as well. We had a rough start with a scorching hot state room ... that would not could down.. I had to be very insistent to finally get someone down to determine that the room was not getting adequate air flow. Our first port was Hallifax, which was nice. A few days at sea... then 3 Icelandic ...

We thought Iceland would be impressive. It was. I wanted to see Cork. It was canceled. Ship was old, service was haphazard, crew didn’t understand or ignored requests. Club Class dining was worth it, but didn’t like condescending attitude of wait staff, their inability to pronounce names, their insincere fawning. I am not “Lady” anyone; don’t call me that. Pepper routine ridiculous, should ...
