THE MAGICAL QM2

Sail Date: November 05, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Cabin: 6063

We are avid cruisers, but this was our first Cunard experience.   It was a "bucket list" item to do the transatlantic crossing on the QM2 and it did not disappoint us in any way.   What a wonderful ship - luxurious, elegant, and STRONG which was comforting given the gale force winds and high seas we experienced.  But as sailors, we loved the rough weather and the sense of the sea it brought to us.

 

As to service, the word impeccable does not begin to describe our experience.  From our stateroom steward (Albino) to every member of the crew, the white glove concept was lovingly carried out.   And we do mean lovingly, since there was an atmosphere of dedication and good cheer throughout.  

 

A very special mention for Robert Howie, the hotel manager.  What a delight to meet him!   He is the epitome of dedicated professionalism, charm and good humour.   Cunard should count themselves very lucky to have him.   We hope our paths will cross again, and that is very likely since we are already looking at our next voyage on the QM2!

 

And just for fun, and to re-live our QM2 experience, we are going on Monday 23 November to stay overnight on the original Queen Mary, now in Long Beach, California.  We will dine at the excellent onboard restaurant, Sir Winston's, and raise a glass to her magical successor, the QM2!

 

Thank you, Cunard, for keeping the magnificent tradition of ocean liners going in such a perfect fashion.

 

Yours aye

QM2 5 November Transatlantic

 

 

Cabin / Stateroom
We loved our cabin - especially having a balcony since Deck 7 was closed for two days - at least we got some fresh air. I would have liked a lot more hangers, but that is an easy fix.
Embarkation and Disembarkation Smooth, efficient and friendly - couldn't have asked for more - well done Cunard!
Ship Quality
Well, it is the QM2 - what do you expect but the best and she delivered.
Destinations and Excursions n/a since this was transatlantic.
Onboard Activities
Since we were somewhat confined due to rough weather, it was great to have such a wide selection of things to do - lectures, planetarium, etc.
Children's Programs n/a since we are seniors without appendages
Entertainment
Great musicians, so much talent. And the line dancing was such fun!
Service and Staff
Superlative! Robert Howie, hotel manager, is just wonderful. Stateroom steward
Albino above par. Dining room table service fantastic.
Food and Dining
Fabulous food, fabulous service.
