Hi Steven We are going on QM2 end Feb to Caribbean and have just received our itinerary from Cunard. On this it states 3 nights Formal Dress code Black tie or formal dark suit for gentlemen and evening dress or other formal attire for ladies. 4 semi formal nights - dress code Jacket and tie for gentlemen, cocktail dress or trouser suit for ladies. No Jeans. 4 Elegant Casual - dress code Jacket - no tie required for gentlemen - dress, skirt or trousers for ladies - NO JEANS Whilst I have not cruised with Cunard before only with P & O I cannot imagine Cunard would allow anyone to wear jeans in ANY of the formal dining rooms. It could well be that if people have worn jeans they have opted to eat elsewhere rather than the dining room. As for the food and entertainment I cannot comment but other than what I have read on this website I would say that this would not be a problem. Of course food and entertainment is entirely relative to the person eating or being entertained, as one man's meat is another man's poison. Finally I would say that if you have any reservations at all about anything regarding dress code/food/entertainment etc to contact Cundard direct who I have found to be extremely helpful.

Hi - We have just returned from New York / QM2 Caribbean cruise and I can not praise it enough. The Brittania food is fantastic, there is a excellent choice for each course, if you want something cooked differently or an ingredient left out it is not a problem and if you want something a little more simple they are more than happy to oblige. You really will have no issuse with the food whatsoever I can promise you that. With respect to the dress codes, we found Cunard to be strict with the codes in the Britannia however if (on a formal night) you chose to eat is one of the other restrants such as the King Court (Bufett) the dress code was not policed however we did not see any jeans worn at all the whole trip. We were dissapointed to see people in the buffett area during the day in swim suits however Cunard stopped this very quickly by way of a message from the Cruise Director. The entertainment is as you would imagine, lots of "Big Band" nights and ballroom dancing with splashes of upbeat, they are not the best and I have ever seen but well above average. All in all I can not praise the curise and cunard enough - I would go again in an instant and am already booked for 2009. I know you will be looked after so very well please do not have any worries about your trip at all. If you have any further ??? please do not hesitate to contact me and if you are interested in even more info I have all the menus from the Britannina that I would be happy to mail you. Regards Donn.

We have cruised on QM2 twice and thoroughly enjoyed the experience both times.We found the quality of both food and service to be of a high standard in the Britannia restaurant.We certainly didn't encounter people wearing jeans on formal nights and felt that the standard of evening wear generally was of a higher calibre than many other cruise lines.The entertainment was excellent although we wish they would have more show team productions and less cabaret shows.We would recommend QM2 to anyone and think you will be satisfied in your quest for a "special" cruise.

By Peter Wellman

Peter Wellman's blog

It’s a question I get asked almost daily, are drinks packages worth it and of course there isn’t an easy answer unless you want to go through your daily intake on holiday with me! Some people literally work out how many drinks they would have to have to get their money’s worth which is fine but there are other things to consider.First of all do you really want to be thinking about it every day ? How many have i had today, am I getting my moneys worth ? In my opinion no, I li...

MSC Cruises, they just get better and better in my opinion. Last month I wrote about getting on a ship and helping the Caribbean by going there and spending some money. MSC have done a lot more than that with their latest offer of a school for the children.Along with the government of the British Virgin Islands MSC have dedicated a new, building that will serve as a school in Virgin Gorda. All 15 schools were destroyed in the British Virgin Islands during the recent hurricanes, the new pre-fa...
