Just do it...No review or research can give you this experience. It was surreal being on the ship. We had 2 days of pretty rough seas but we hardly felt a thing because of how well this ship is designed. And expect to feel that you are traveling abroad. We hardly met any other Americans and had some wonderful times with people from the UK, New Zealand, and the Channel Islands.

Sail aboard this ship if you want the experience of an ocean voyage, where you are days out on the sea. Sail aboard this ship if you want an experience that emphasizes a relatively high level of elegance. Do not sail on this ship if you want to wear shorts and a tank-top to the dining room, or expect a conga line around the pool.

The bulk of the customers on the ship were 60+ years old in my estimation...we are in are mid 60's as well. Few children and few younger couples. If you like travelling with mostly older people, this is the ship for you. I personally would have preferred a more evenly distributed age group. Who wants to travel on a floating old folks home?

Don't spend a penny on extras, because all the meals and activities included are great. The only charge you will need is for internet, which you should skip because you are on vacation, and drinks, which are very reasonably priced. Ask for a table for six or eight for dinner, to meet interesting travelers.

Prepare yourself for a wonderful adventure. You get to meet some wonderful people. All personal staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. They treat you like family.

The QE2 is definitely a Luxury Ocean Liner. If you want casual, this is not the ship for you. There are formal nights every night of the crossings and semi-formal the rest of the cruise.

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

Well worth the extra money to upgrade to the “Grills” I would never fly business class as do not see the value, but I will only cruise Grills with Cunard
