Review summary

We enjoyed sailing on the QM2 for the second time and we are looking forward to many more. She suited our needs very well, a quiet group of guests, well travelled, and well read. We met many interesting people, no one trying to impress the other - quiet elegance.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
No complaints, food was excellent in the dining rooms as in the buffet, although the buffet could have more variety on a daily basis. Too many things were constants. Enjoyed the Asian food.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The few activities we participated in met our expectations.


4 out of 5
The guest performers were wonderful. The ship's company was over miked and too loud to enjoy. We walked out on all of them because of that.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Excellent, no complaints.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
All was spotless and well maintained. An ocean liner is an ocean liner and functions well as such.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Beautifully comfortable mattress and pillows. Spotlessly clean, and the size was enjoyable with a sitting area. We were very comfortable in our cabin.

Ship tip

The ship is definitely for the mature adult who is well traveled.

Up and coming, a pleasure to visit, clean and enjoyable.

Castries, St. Lucia

2 out of 5
The capital of St. Lucia, Castries, is very poor and very sad. People sitting around who should be working. This is not a port worth visiting.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
Up and coming, very well maintained, clean and enjoyable to visit.
