Review Summary

Did not live up to our expectations. It seemed that they are understaffed in all areas, especially in the dining room. The menus were unimaginative and the food preparation was blah. The "steaks" served were of inferior quality meat. Our server had too many tables to attend to and barely had time to provide minimal attention. I never knew his name nor the name of his assistant. The immigration check-in process upon our return was chaotic. There was only one passageway for getting to, and departing from, the immigration check-in desks. Consequently, the crush of people entering and leaving caused some harsh word exchanges. A simple solution would have been to set a divider and post signs with directions and instructions.

There were other restaurants available for an additional cost of $30 per person per meal for dinner and $20 per person per meal for lunch. Why??

Not much to see. Went on an excursion to Peggy's Cove with lobster lunch. I thought it was illegal to extract lobsters that small from the waters.
Don't Miss: Titanic victims burial site

Pros: ship's cleanliness

Cons: food and food service

Recommends Queen Mary 2? No.
