The layout of the ship had a lot to be desired, but the common areas were clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was a good size, but the ensuite was very small and the shower had a plastic curtain, not good.

Ship Tip

Think twice about sailing on Queen Mary 2. Other cruise ships have much more to offer.
