2 Way Atlantic Crossing
Kevin forster | September 12, 2022 | Cunard | Queen Mary 2
For the first time we decided to go to Southampton by coach booking through cruise connect, a great journey down and back .
Embarkation was pretty smooth and after going to the muster station it was straight to the Golden Lion for lunch.
As we had crossed the Atlantic before we decided on an inside cabin this time cabin 6114 couldn’t fault the size, layout and amenities the only problem was our cabin was right next door to the service door which was a bit of a problem with the inner door banging and causing some noise and vibration in our room but nothing too bad.
We only ate in the Britannia restaurant on a few occasions choosing instead to eat at the Kings Court and other places on board all of which we found first class.
On the way to New York we found the talks interesting and informative and quality shows in the royal court theatre, but the other entertainment was not for us, although understanding the Cunard lines heritage it really could do with a few modern twists.
What we love about the ship is the space especially on the higher decks.
We spent a full day in New York on a ships excursion which was really good value for money.
The return crossing was dubbed art and design week which although interesting was really a big sell for the new ship Queen Anne having said that it didn’t put us off booking onboard for a sailing next year .
