7 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Southampton To New York)
Sail Date: July 17, 2016
Ship: Queen Mary 2
Cabin Number: 4009
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 1 year ago

I believe the QM2 is the best of all of the cruise ships.  However just sailing from Southampton to New York is called a crossing,----albeit the most elegant luxurious crossing you could ever imagine.

     The only thing I would like Cunard to do differently is that I was assigned a dinner table in the Britannia restaurant which seated me right next to a lady that they had seated me with at my table the very year before. So it was not exactly like a fresh new voyage.  Plus she only showed up at the table every other day at our table for six.  All in all---I love the ship, and the service and entertainment was A-1.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was an inside cabin (very cost effective) which was way way way up at the bow of the ship which means it is a long long walk to everything else toward the aft of the ship. They charge more to be midship. Having sailed several times you would think they might give you a little upgrade for your loyalty. My cabin was very nice and had plenty of room.
