Granted QE2 is nearly at the end of her service, but the service level still remains very high, Of course she is an old ship but with ages come character and she has plenty of that,You will enjoy the cruise and that unique atmosphere that is held aboard the QE2.
We have talked to many people on this subject (on board the QE2) and the general opinion of 90% of people is this. If you are a regular on the QE2 you will probably not like the Queen Mary for various reasons. If however you travel on the Queen Mary first without ever having been on the QE2 you will probably like the Mary. We found this to be entirely true. As regulars on the QE2 we tried the Mary and hated it. The QM2 is far too big and the staff don't have the same level of commotment as the QE2. The service on the QE2 is second to none. O.K. it's an old ship but in our opinion it is still far superior to the Mary and from what i read the Victoria too. What is this sudden preoccupation with size. I hear that the new QE3 will also be a vast ship between the Mary and Victoria in size. If it is then we won't be going on it. Why o why won't Cunard listen to it's regular paying passengers. WE DON'T WANT THESE HUGE SHIPS. Please please make the new QE3 the same size as the QE2 if you want to keep your regular passengers. Sorry to rant on but it looks like we are going to loose our regular holiday when the QE2 retires. The new ships are just awful.
Many thanks for both comments.
We enjoyed our cruise on QM2, and thought it would be good to have a trip on the QE2 before she retires.
I now feel, from your experience, that we will enjoy ours.
Thanks,again, Ernest Waites.
