July 2016 - 7 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Southampton To New York) Cruise on Queen Mary 2
Wonderful, Elegant, First Class treatment for budget travelers!
I loved this ship! I have been on many "fun" ships, which I loved, but the experience on the Queen Mary 2 was totally different and cannot be compared.
The food was superior, the service was above and beyond anything I've ever experienced, the entertainment was top-notch, outstanding lectures, we loved the planetarium, the 3-D movies, we took fencing lessons (!), enjoyed the outdoor heated pool and the indoor solarium pool and hot tubs. The caption made excellent announcements at noon each day - full of interesting information and history. The Kid's Zone took my 5 year old grandson for 9 hours each day and he loved it!
We got across the Atlantic in 6 days with dolphin, flying fish and whale sightings along the way. The ship cut through the days with large ocean swells without anyone noticing . . . smooth as silk. Everyone was friendly and happy.
