Just a short 4-nighter for our first time on QM2 - some people say it's a bit tired and not dissimilar to other cruise ships (P&O) but couldn't disagree more - QM2 is a unique ship, a grand ship, both in design and style. We loved the sweeping rear decks, the wide promenade deck (a proper deck going right around the ship), wide walkways, huge staircases, all the interior decor, comfortable lounges and bars, plenty of places to find and relax - we'll have to back as there's still a couple of places we didn't get round to seeing. Comfortable theatres (2). We had an 'obstructed view' balcony which was comfortable, adequate and spacious - the view didn't bother us! The entertainment on board was top class. We liked the Kings Court self-service and found the main restaurant pleasant - although my meal the first night was tough (pork) and the service a little slow (we've had better on P&O). We shall definitely be booking on her again just to experience this ship for all it has to offer- upholding the true Cunard traditions.
From the moment we boarded to the time we disembarked was very relaxing the staff were helpful won’t hesitate to go on this beautiful Ship again.
The service and itinerary were fine. I expected the QM2 being the Cunard flagship to be grander than it was. It also seemed very disjointed ie there was no direct way to access the Queen's room, as you had to either walk through the restaurant or go down stairs through the art galley then back up some more stairs. Also the settee style seating in the theatre was very uncomfortable. My friend and I agreed that we both preferred the Queen Elizabeth and Victoria.
It was great especially the staff. So helpful and polite in all areas. I just have a couple of complaints. One is regarding the service charge applied to bar purchases. The drinks were really expensive without service charges on top. Also the per person deduction for general tipping was more than half of what I spent on board for the total journey. For this reason I opted out and tipped who I thought had given me the best service. I notice that P&O have done away with them and I think Cunard should do the same. The sail aways were a bit boring too. No atmosphere and the onus being on selling the very expensive, quite average Champagne. Too stuffy.
