The range in passenger shipping is large and colourful. We are thinking of large ferries, mail and expedition ships and cruise ships. And then there is the Queen Mary 2. She is above all ships that we have known so far.
Queen Mary 2 - Grand Lobby
As passengers, we prefer expedition ships and small and medium-sized cruise ships. We make an exception for the Queen Mary 2. We know QM2 from a transatlantic trip in 2015 and a short trip in August 2022. The one from Hamburg to Southampton The leading voyage refreshed our memories, especially since the ship went through a modernization phase between the two voyages in 2016. We emphasize that we do not know QM2 in its capacity as a cruise ship.
Queen Mary 2 in everyday ship life
On board the QM2 we feel in another world. The ship is in very good condition compared to 2015. The cabin service and the service in the gastronomic areas leave nothing to be desired. Compared to many cruise ships, the QM2 pays attention to etiquette. There are gala evenings; the density of evening wear is high.
Queen Mary 2 - Queen's Room
The shipping company clearly tries to please their German-speaking guests. One finds the German language in announcements, the daily menus of the service restaurants as well as the daily printed news services. The Queen Mary 2 is highly recommended for those who like service-oriented, elegant passenger ships. A journey with QM2 offers unique and unforgettable moments.
