Best cruise yet
David Biddle | September 16, 2019 | Cunard | Queen Mary 2
My wife and I returned to Southampton on 4 September having spent 15 very enjoyable nights on the QM2. This was the best cruise we have experienced. From the Meet and Greet car parking service at the docks to picking up our car again at the end again in the short stay car park all went very smoothly. Check in was quick, our stateroom very clean and luggage arrived as we opened the door.
As usual the room steward was helpful but not intrusive. The food in the Brittania Restrauant was ,with one exception, excellent with good choices throughout the cruise. The exception was a sauce that I did not think go well with the fish. The staff in the Restrauant were always friendly . Well done Max and Lucas. People gave commented about the buffet area and overcrowding. Yes it does get very busy at times but we did always manage to find a seat. We thought the choice of food in the Kings Court buffet was imaginative especially at lunchtime..
The talks on both the outward and inward legs were the best we gave experienced. The evening shows were well done with some spectacular costumes. The individual acts were very good also. The real highlights for us were the classical guitar concerts and of course a the appearance of James Taylor on the return journey. The only downside was that the variety shows were repeated on the return journey.
I do not think we met anyone on the cruise who was not impressed?
Well done Cunard
