We recently paid a huge some of money for a supposed "5-star cruise" on the Queen Mary 2 from Cape Town to Sydney....What a disappointment, what a nightmare. The cabin shook so violently that it made me physically sick. After 2 nights without sleep they moved us to a "disable" cabin where the mattresses were so shocking they gave us terrible back ache. We asked for other mattresses but were told they didn't have. We asked for our so-called "5-star accommodation" to be improved but they did nothing. 3 nights later when we arrived in Mauritius, we had no choice but to ABANDON SHIP!! Losing our dreams of the most romantic holiday and all our money. And Cunard? Nothing! No offer of a any compensation at all... DISGUSTED!! AND BROKE!!
