Short Description

See in 2017 on a spectacular five-night getaway to the Continent. Canal-lined Amsterdam will be in party mood when you arrive on New Year’s Eve for an overnight stay. There’s still time for Bruges to cast its spell, its medieval heart dotted with churches and markets.

This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Clean and elegantly decorated ship, not gaudy like another cruise ship I have been on. I got a beautiful room with a balcony. The choice of foods was wonderful. I really enjoyed the shows and the music and the sightseeing.

Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by cruising on Queen Victoria San Francisco to Sydney in 2013. Fantastic introduction to cruising for my wife and a most lavish experience for both. Cunard staff were/are friendly, welcoming, great customer service and the food- brilliant. We enjoyed the lectures - very interesting- I am still recalling to friends the many anecdotes quoted in the lectures we attended, and the evening entertainment was first class.
We have sailed with other cruise lines but not 6 star like Cunard.
We are celebrating big birthdays next year so trying QM2 this time. Can't wait. Counting down to take off.
We are sure we'll receive courteous service, first class dining and entertainment again.
Well done Cunard.
Happy cruisers

Just off a 12 night Caribbean adventure and QM2 was even better than its legendary reputation. The ship is gorgeous and in fantastic condition. The food was delicious and service attentive and professional. The staff and crew were simply superb. As a veteran cruiser, I didn't think I could be blown away, but I was. QM2 and Cunard are the most famous names on the high seas for good reason, they are the best at what they do.

I went on a summer cruise and Cunard is a great way to see Norwegian Coast. They have great variety of itinerary options and also got a chance to visit the far northern islands that have wild polar bears. The excursions and spots along the coast were amazing. We got to see isolated waterfalls as well as interesting cities and towns. The price wasn't too high and you got lot's of good experiences and food. I had the second best meal of my life in Voss and I blew too much money in the casino but that's on me. The room was comfortable and the meals and snacks were consistently pretty good. The only negative is I felt isolated without good Internet service while on board. I wish the Internet service was better. But overall it was one of my favorite vacations and was a wonderful way to see the coastline and islands in a manageable amount of time (3 weeks). Nothing mind-blowing, but everything was enjoyable enough.

This was by far the most amazing experience of a lifetime. I can't believe how fancy everything was and how many things there were to do on board! What a trip! We didn't initially plan any excursions, but had the opportunity for a last minute adventure, and boy was it worth it! Next time we'll be sure to select as many excursions as we can! I didn't give this a 5 star, because it was very expensive and there were definitely cheaper options to similar destinations, but I didn't know if any of them would have compared with this one. The cabin was very cute. A mixture of quaintness and elegance with a view that you'll remember the rest of your lives. We spent most of the trip in our cabin!

Onboard amenities were very entertaining and fun. There were many options for both genders of all age groups, whether it be a 5 year old boy or 60 year old female. Itinerary options were very good. Options were very fun, convenient, and safe. Staff during these events were great. Value was great and what was expected. Good for all ages, boys and girls, and has a 10/10 value. Events, staff, etc also had a great value and was fantastic. Quality of stay was 10/10. Entertained the entire trip, easy sleeping arrangements, one of my best vacations so far. Crew was lovely along with the other vacationers.
