After the $132 million dollar renovation some things fell quite short.

First of all QM2 no longer has inside smoking rooms. We cannot possibly 

understand how you provide smoking for cigars and pipes and NOT cigarettes in

the same room!  The past two voyages were accommodating with an inside smoking room AND  smoking outside under the overhang on deck 8 pool level.  Now you have to bake in the sun or rain on deck 7.  Did Cunard forget that this is a transatlantic voyage and the North Atlantic is a cold and windy place to be.  Totally unacceptable and biased. 


The new buffet area..If you were trying to get away from a classy traditional atmosphere you succeeded.  I know Carrera Marble is the latest "look" but

it made you feel  as though you were in a cold  "commercial" kitchen.  Quite stark and uninviting.  Your ORIGINAL separation for food selections was both 

inviting and classy.    It seemed the  daily selection of foods was repetitive.  On desert display:  boring selections with an industrial display.


SORRY 4 thumbs down Crying
