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

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 ...

A Solid Product, definitely not Luxury ship

This was our 17th cruise, second on the QM2 and first Transatlantic crossing. Executive summary: Cunard offers a solid product, comparable with other mass market lines like Celebrity, but definitely not a luxury experience. Outstanding entertainment, mediocre food, decent service, terrible embarkation experience and almost unusable internet. Overall, pretty much in line with our ...

It has now been almost 3 weeks since disembarking from the QM2 and frankly I cannot wait to get back on the ship! Prior to this voyage I had never travelled via ship, I had always taken a flight but in 2019 I decided to try something new and book myself on a cruise ship and having completed extensive research on the subject I decided to do a transatlantic crossing on board the QM2(I know it's ...

QM2 needs urgent TLC and cabin refurbishment

I wanted to do a westbound roundtrip transatlantic crossing which was on my bucket list. I come from the city where the original QM was built. I booked a Balcony cabin, sorry stateroom, (obstructed Deck 8) but was given an upgrade to a sheltered balcony on Deck 4. It may be an upgrade for Cunard but it felt like a downgrade to me. Whilst clean and bed very comfortable it was dreary and dull. ...
