Wanted something upscale, elegant and fun for all ages. The QM2 did not dissapoint. I am very picky and i cannot say enoigh great things about this ship. Everything from the crew to the service to the room, the food was excellent. The high tea and ballroom, the bands, the shows were top knotch! Most amazing was the kids club, who knew! Lovely young ladies showing interest and kindness to ...

We were tired of taking planes to Europe. So we booked a passage om the QM2 to Hamburg from Brooklyn. We used Uber to get to Pier 3 in the Brooklyn Red Hook neighborhood and did our check-in to the Queen Mary 2, an ocean liner, not a cruise ship as the crew will quickly point out. Rather than repeat all the interesting technical details about the ship, I suggest a visit to ...

On past trips as a QM2 solo traveler I stayed in a sheltered balcony cabin but decided to give the new KC solo traveler cabins a try. When I boarded the ship in NYC it was not necessary to take a busy lift to get to my cabin as the entrance to the KC cabins are quite near the enterance to the ship. Since the cabins were created from scratch during the recent QM2 remastering everything is truly ...

My wife i have had eight prior cruises, with the most recent two on Holland America. For this cruise, we wanted a trans-ocean cruise on a ship with dance floor, as we are social ballroom dancers. We also wanted a ship which looked and felt like a real ship, not a floating hotel. The May 15, 2017, eastbound crossing on the QM2 fit those requirements. Booking: We had a misunderstanding about ...

We chose this QM2 cruise because we had never done a crossing and the seven day length seemed a good way to try it. We were in the middle group, Princess Class, anbd dined eveninns in the Princess Grill. For breakfst adn lunch we chose the Kings Buffet (the larage cafeteria that served the whole ship). The voyage included three formal nights, and in the Queens Griolle most men wore dinner ...

Home again. Ahhhhhh. Last May, we did a westbound crossing on the QM2, our third voyage and second crossing aboard her. It was so perfect for us that we decided to do it again this year, except as a round trip. (spoiler – We rebooked aboard to do it yet again next year). A week or so after last year’s crossing, she went in for her “remastering.” I was eager to see the results. This review is ...

We have crossed the Atlantic dozens of times but always at 39,000 feet, so we decided it was time we tried a more relaxed means of travel and make a transatlantic crossing by ship, hence the title of this review. Embarkation We flew to La Guardia airport on Sunday May 10th and were met by Cunard staff who guided us to the shuttle bus that would take us to the QM-2. After 3 circuits of La ...

We felt compelled to write a review after reading review after review of complaints!! Really folks! It's appears to this reader that many reviewers attitudes need to be checked at the door! First, how in the world can so many people remember everything they ate? Did they have a recorder at each meal and do they work for competing cruise lines???? Marina is an awesome vessel with awesome ...

From the moment we embarked in Brooklyn, this trip on the Queen Mary 2 was everything we hoped and imagined it would be. The ship is beautiful inside and out, and very well-maintained. We had gotten upgraded to a sheltered balcony cabin from an ocean view on the same deck (5, forward), and were extremely pleased with the size, layout, cleanliness and ambiance of our cabin. We had a great cabin ...

From the moment we embarked in record time-15 minutes, we were welcomed, made to feel comfortable and began to relax in the majestic surroundings of QM2. The food was incredibly good, Todd English restaurant could not do enough to make our anniversary dinner special and delicious. Our stateroom was immaculately pristine complete with champagne and spirits, ice and mix. The service in the Queens ...
