Wonderful Experience and met great new friends with whom we are still in touch. by CaptJackRussell

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I can't say enough about how much we love this experience. On this particular crossing we met new friends who have since traveled with us transatlantic on the QM2 for the 2nd time and have even come to Ireland to visit us during the summer. The QM2 staff have always treated us wonderfully. It's a 1st Class Experience.

p I boarded th QM2 in... by wallyhansen

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

p I boarded th QM2 in Sydney Australia, and went as far as Cape Town. p The champaign in the room when I arrived was great, dressing gown and slippers supplied all fantastic and no extra cost. p I did not like the idea of not being able to go into certain dinning rooms, bars and decks as I was not a 1st class paying passenger. Although I had to pay for 2 people in my cabin even though I travel solo. Seeing signs saying No Access to this deck unless you are a 1st class passenger, was not my idea of a friendly ship. I was told the ship became more friendly once all the Aussies got on in Sydney. But I got the impression they cater more for American passengers, even the stage shows were aimed at Americans, playing their national anthem, a few Aussies called out Aussie, Aussie, Aussie oi, oi, oi. p I must mention I am not a Australian but British, but I felt proud to be amoungst the Aussies. p I loved the dinning rooms and even the buffet, I spoke to one First class person who called them the Pigs Trough !! p Speaking to other passengers in the laundry, and people who had cruised on both the QM2 and the Queen Elizabeth, they all said the Elizabeth was the better ship, as she was smaller and more exclusive, and silver service. p Queen Mary was on my bucket list, and I do not regret going on her, and when she pulls into a Port you are always made to feel special that you are on her. Would I cruise on her again,, humm not worth the money I spent, but I would never say never.

amazing time by AT393

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

when we first stepped on the ship I was overwhelmed by the attention to detail. As we got used to the deck plans, I truely enjoyed wandering around the ship and in all of the different rooms finding all of the unique features. The staff were incredible and really made the cruise a wonderful experience.

Excellent experience by SueI1

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My husband and I took the Queen Mary two summers ago from New York to Southampton on our way to Morocco. We were so excited and with good reason. The crew was very attentive and the food was over the top. Everything was perfect and no expense was spared as far as attention to detail and cleanliness. I actually saw a steward going around the halls with a white glove checking for dust. No one was allowed to take a tray in the buffet areas without first using hand sanitizer. It was a little boring by the 5th day, but we only took the ship as a means to go from point A to point B as I do not fly! It scares me. Anyway, we had a relaxing time and the cabin was wonderful. We got upgraded to an oceanview and were thrilled! We just wish there had been a few more younger people, but overall, we loved it! We are going again next year. I was expecting our first baby when we went in 2008 and she will be 2 next time. :)

QM2, Cruising in Goodwill Style by FrancesM4

Sail Date: / Traveled As:

Do not be fooled by the glamor of QM2--yes the ship is sumptuous, but if you encounter a problem--Watch out! Help is not at hand and attitude of so-called helpers is pretty bad. Feature a cabin you specfically requested has been given to someone else. The substitute, configured for disabled, has lost most of its closet and room space, so we were provided with a rolling clothes rack and 3 sets of plastic drawers from a Dollar store! How fun!

Relaxing, elegant way to travel by EllenM6

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The voyage was exemplary from leaving New York through arrival at Southampton. Our tablemates were a delightful English couple and young Scottish woman- we looked forward to dining with them each night. We enjoyed lunch in the Golden Lion Pub and Todd English. Breakfast was always room service or buffet. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the library each morning . I selected books while my husband used the computers to grade papers for an online summer school class he was teaching. We had a premium balcony room and opened the doors each afternoon to take naps. We enjoyed plays, shows and lectures. This is truly a civilized way to travel- next time I will take the ship round trip.

Back in Time by CarolA12

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I was truly enchanted with the elegant decor and the feeling of royalty throughout the ship. The staff with whom we were associated with were all extremely well trained and showed respect. "Good morning Sir" or Mame. Service was truly a #1 from the staff. The food choices were well thought out and the entertainment was indeed entertaining. It was nice to dress up for formal evenings - going back in time. Yes, I certainly enjoyed the "red carpet".

Crossing on the Queen Mary 2 by Sluggoaafa

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Loved the ship. Enjoyed the awesome food, and the staff made everyone welcomed. Get to know when/where the Friends of Dorothy meet, or ensure you are up early to enjoy some of the lectures the cruise line offers. (lost hours every night as we were going eastbound...now need to gain them back at some point! lol)

recent transatlantic crossing by AnneG3

Sail Date: /

While the cabins were wonderful in the Queens Grill category and the butler service was excellent thanks to Ibrahim and Carlos the food service both in the Queens Grill and breakfast in the room were below my expectations. Most of the food had been cooked ahead and held over. Special one-on-one service from Ali was very good.

a disappointment by JoannM3

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

The staterooms were smaller than thise I am used to on Holland American. The layout of the ship had deadends or you had to use different elevators, hard for physically challenged cruisers.
