From the beginning\, this cruise experience brought dissatisfaction and annoyance. In our \"upgraded\" cabin\, the vibrations were so intense\, the Deck Manager was summoned to witness our vibrating bed. We were then moved (after all unpacking had already been done) up one deck to a slightly better accomodation. The lesson here is NEVER trust the cruise line with your selection of the \"GTY\" option. Moving on to the food quality in the buffet lines and lunch in the dining room...like choke me with a spoon...both the quality of the food and the service was abysmal. In seven days with about four meals a day (approx. 30 meals) maybe only two meals were actually good. Lastly as far as activities were concerned\, don't bother to cruise this line if you have kids or are expecting american standards of excellence. Overall\, the QM2 is a big \"swing and a miss\" on every level.

Pros: Getting off the ship

Cons: Service & Food was abysmal...the only good thing was Dining Room Dinner Service

Recommends Queen Mary 2? No.
