Boarding in Singpore was chaotic and slow, no great customer service, but that changed as soon as we got on board. Stateroom was immaculately clean and stayed that way as rooms were serviced twice a day. Always had fresh, dry towels. Service and food in the Britannia restaurant was very good, always a variety to choose from especially for those with dietry requirements, gluten intolerant etc...the Kings Court buffet and the Chefs Galley catered for the snack style lunches with a selection of hot dishes and make your own salads & rolls if you didn't want to dress for dinner in the Britannia.
Fabulous library and book/gift shop with wonderful observation windows to gaze out of while reading, or snoozing as most people ended up doing :)) we had a wonderful day in the Canyon Ranch Spa with 3 different saunas to choose from along with the Hydropool and smaller spa pools. I had the Best facial massage ever and floated out extremely relaxed which set the tone for the rest of the cruise. Had my hair done twice in the Hair Salon and make up done once for the formal nights and felt & looked like a million $. Gabriella and the rest of the team are very professional and quick as most ladies wanted their hair done for formal nights so you have to make your booking as soon as you get on board. Hubby was able to hire a Dinner Jacket for the formal nights which we organised on day 1. This saved us having to carry 1 in our luggage and he looked very dapper indeed :)) we enjoyed the Captains Cocktail party with at least 200 other passengers. No hand shake from the captain due to health risk,standard procedure on board , only photographs. Captain and 2IC were very entertaining. The rest of the entertainment and lecturers on board were very good and had to make priorities on what to see as a couple were on at the same time, but cunard solved that by showing a recording of it the next day that could be viewed in your stateroom. Considering this wasn't my preferred cruise, my husbands choice, I am now converted to Cunard. I would, however, like to now try the Queen Victoria or queen Elizabeth as they are smaller ships and have been told they are more intimate. QMII is a beautiful, elegant ship and we are already looking to book our next cruise with Cunard, this time for longer than 11 days.

Check in was the quickest and easiest I have ever encountered. We had a fabulous stateroom - great view and the interior of our cabin was lovely. Exceeded expectations for a Level 4 cabin. We dined in Brittania the first night at a late sitting. Extremely efficient service; nice food; great surroundings. The rest of the time we hung out at Kings Court which was a little disappointing. My husband said it reminded him of a hospital or a Coles cafeteria. I thought it was fine - you must have different classes of dining available as not everyone will want to fine-dine every night.
We paid to use the Spa and hung out there all Saturday afternoon/early evening. Well worth it. The hydrotherapy pools and ambience is awesome. Plus, you are very secluded. Massage was excellent.
I would have to say though, this is certainly a cruise for older people who like to sit around and eat, drink, play cards etc. Not much to do for younger people / families. Having said that, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience and thought it was a fabulous liner.

I have never been on a cruise before so it was with much excitement that I made my way aboard the ship on the 7th of March .

We arrived at 4pm check in was faultless and very quick , no waiting in line , straight through customs and onto the ship . Straight to the cabin , which was an inside stateroom on deck 4 near the front of the ship . Nice comfortable furnishings and a lovely bottle of Champaine were awaiting us , but as im claustrophobic I was not really looking forward to 12 days in a room with no windows or natural light . The cabin was in fact the major disappointment of the trip as it meant that all waking hours onboard the ship had to be spent in public areas .
We explored the ship which is a beautiful one ! There were many public places all very grand and as the days went by we found all the comfortable nooks to sit in .

Dinner was the late sitting in the Britannia restaurant a very grand two storey room . Food was OK , I must admit I was expecting a little more . The staff were fantastic though and went out of there way to adapt the menu to all tastes .
The big success in the food department is Todd English ! you do have to pay to dine here , but the food was fantastic and the staff went above and beyond the call of duty . A truly amazing experience . We were so impressed we had dinner here 5 nights out of the 12 .
The buffet at the Royal court was a good alternative for lunch and dinner if you couldn't be bothered dressing up , as you could make your own dinner . Best for a quick breakfast as they would even cook you eggs fresh .

The shore excursions were great ! A really good mix of things to do in each port , that catered to all level of fitness . We paddled a Maori war canoe one day and sailed an Americas cup boat the next .
The only grip was that the ship is a large one with over 2000 people on it so days when tenders were needed to transfer people ashore it was a long wait till you could get on one if you didn't have a booked tour . Sometimes we were not able to get off till close to noon and with sailing time at 5pm that didn't leave a lot of time .
The highlight was the beautiful cruise up the Milford sound ! So stunning that all else paled into insignificance .

The formal nights were great ! It was fun to dress up and everyone on the ship looked fantastic . I can understand why the formal nights are so popular on the Cunard line ships , it was lots of fun ! The balls as well were great with the wonderful gentleman hosts there to whisk you around the dance floor , what a great service !

It was possible to find some nooks and crannies where you could just relax , our favorites were the Commodores club and the library at the bow of the ship . Great views with a lovely tranquil ambiance . Another favorite was tucked up in a window of the Queens room where I spent many hours reading and watching the dance classes .

Overall it was a pretty mixed experience . I will try cruising again , but in an outside cabin with a balcony ! The inside cabin definitely clouded the whole experience .
It is certainly a ship that caters to an older demographic and if you like to meet lots of people and are happy chatting with strangers all day then this ship is for you !

My partner and i just came back from such a disappointing time on the Queen Mary 2. Food was below par, buffet was like Coles cafeteria, very little variety and no presentation. Britannia dining was very poor and bad service. High tea sandwiches were stale and no service. Entertainment was certainly lacking, if you like playing bridge, doing jigsaw puzzles and going to the library then this is the cruise for you. For what you pay such a waste of money. From first boarding the ship we didn't get the room we paid for but an obstructed view of the lifeboats, we asked for table 6 dining but got a table of 2. Staff were rude and due to outbreak of virus we were rationed with food and portions were disgusting. Would not recommend this ship to anyone definitely stay on the other lines not cunard.
