7 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Southampton To New York)
Sail Date: December 15, 2015
Ship: Queen Mary 2
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8118
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Crossed westbound in mid-December.  Selected a balcony stateroom on Deck 8 near midship.  Stateroom was larger than expected and well-appointed.  Storage was generous.  QM2 is due to be refitted.  Hope they replace the shower as fixtures, stall, and cloth shower curtains are due for a change.  Steward provided good service.  All of the dining rooms were excellent with great food and service.  Afternoon tea was delightful.  The daily program was excellent with lectures, concerts, and shows.  The library is the most remarkable space on the ship with thousands of selections across many subjects housed in barrister cases.  Simply amazing.  The staff is highly professional and they managed our sailing through the two storms with 10m swells keeping the ship fairly steady and the passengers comfortable and confident.  Disembarkation was painless.  Would gladly make another crossing in the future.  Cunard is just ightly a cut above Celebrity and is managed like a ship as opposed tk a oating hotel.  Delightful.

Ship Tip

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