The best vacation decision we ever made

I hate to use the cliche..the trip of a lifetime...but if I had to choose one trip this would be it. We loved the idea of not stopping in ports...7 days of just enjoying the journey. I wanted to experience crossing the Atlantic as my ancestors did nearly 300 years ago but awfully happy I had the Queen Mary accommodations. And the solitude and quietness was amazing. So many passengers, like me, read books to just the ever present sound of the sea. It was amazing and awe inspiring.

Queen Mary 2 does not live up to reputation of luxury

Trip great, getting on and off terrible. Nothing made me feel luxurious. Will never travel on Cunard again. Expected cute little towel animals on my bed each night. Dinner experience was good, but could have been more special if staff was not so overworked. The captain never appeared duriing a dinner time. Misinformation about enjoying fireworks on July 4th in Boston.

This was our second time on the Queen Mary II and I must say it was a bit more casual compared to 10 years ago. Some of the guests ignored recommendations about the dress code after 6 pm. But for the most part it is worth the cost to travel at least once on this magnificent ship. Great for group gatherings or special events. We loved the variety of bars but some of the service was not as I remembered. All in all, I would travel again this ship. Be prepared to pay NYC prices for wine and drinks!

1st Atlantic Crossing

Favorite part of our cruise was the good people we met, and the good food at all times, and the calm seas. The only bad part was the embarkation in New York, we stood in line for much over an hour, some of that was outside, with NO seats anywhere. At Southampton, it was very good, with seats and a system with letters to call you for processing. The actual cruise it self was great.Big Smile

Take advantage of the White Star luggage service to ship things home/to the ship. Once we were in Germany, we knew there would be limited opportunities to wear formal clothing. Shipping it back made moving around the country a lot easier.

Deck 11 staterooms at the front of the ship are the best! Access to wonderful things that other guests are just not aware of: The only glass elevators on the ship, the free laundry facilities, the indoor and outdoor observation decks, the extra bathroom, and a quiet location!!!

Please avoid deck 11 staterooms as they are very noisy. A couple we dined with had trouble sleeping. Several reviews cite the same experience.
