Qm2 Nice But Not Luxurious (unless Grill Class!)

Overall Rating: 3


Cruise Line:
Cunard Cruises
Cruise Ship:
Queen Mary 2

Reviewed By: on
First of all can I say that Cunard did give us a very reasonable upgrade from a guarantee D8 cabin and the actual price was very good including NY for New years Eve:

We had been on the QE in April last year and found the ship quite classy although it did have problems. We had been promised by people on that that QM2 was vastly superior and we looked forward it.
QM2 is probably the most attractive of the large ships. I personally find the decor not to my taste. The refurb had taken place but it made us wonder how bad it was before as bits of still looked a bit shabby; the restaurant and the theatre were bland and uninspiring. QE had a nicer restaurant and theatre (with boxes etc).
The food was ok but did notice quality and portions was lower than even last April on QE. Staff were fine and we loved the Planetarium shows (went to all of them). Met some nice people
In conclusion: I think that this being a winter transatlantic crossing skewed my opinions as Im not used to being inside for so long and if this had been a summer med cruise my review would have been more positive. I would probably go on QM2 again but not transatlantic (unless really good deal!).

Times cruised before: 10+
Sailed: January, 2012
Age: 46-55
Cabin: Outside

Quality of Food
Britannia restaurant: Ok but a bit bland and uninspiring menu. Portions smaller than on other lines. Pub: ok Kings Court buffet: Alright

None of the entertainment was great. Even the shows weren't that professional. Comedian (Jeff stevenson boring and very british) Had hear most of the cruise related jokes on other ships!

Shore Excursions

On a whole very good. Mostly quite friendly

Children's Facilities

Onboard Activities
Loved planetarium. Lectures quite interesting.

No complaints about Outside cabin (C2)
