We enjoyed our QM2 passage from Southampton to New York.  It's a wonderful ship that is spectacularly maintained.  The crew was courteous and very responsive.  We were not eating in the Queen's Grill (high end) restaurants, and the food was not great, but reliably tasty.  


Departure from Southampton was very easy and quick,  Arrival in New York was a mess (due to passport control and taxi chaos), but we don't blame Cunard for that.  


All in all, it was the opposite of flying: it was restful and fun.

The food was consistently good, but not great. It may have been better in the exclusive restaurants

Cabin / Stateroom

We were delighted with our cabin and believe that paying more to be on a higher deck is a terrible idea. The room was very comfortable and being closer to the water line made for less rolling and pitching.

New York is great. The disembarkation at Brooklyn was not great
