I read it as 7 nights, assuming icebergs are avoided.

What's wrong with flying back? Nothing much to look at mid-Atlantic.

What's the point in goin to NYC first? Take a glance at the city and then jump on a boat!?

You can add hotel nights. You can benefit from a less restrictive baggage allowance if you like to shop.

Looking at the schedule online we're both wrong oO

It's six nights onboard, you board on the 2nd then 3-7 At Sea - Transatlantic

Surely you can't be serious, how exactly are you going to take the cruise from New York to Southhampton if you don't go to New York first oO

It's just a damn ferry.

They mean what is the point in going to New York at the beginning of a cruise for only 1 day. Obviously to get on this particular ship you need to get to New York first!

Like the others posting, I would find the idea of being on a cruise ship mid-ocean for 6 days rather boring, but if you particularly like cruising then I can see how it would be good for you.

Sounds like a lot of people here have never cruised before. I love cruising but I think this cruise line might be a bit too fancy for me and also probably more suitable to the oldies.

Food is all the hot dogs you can eat

And I thought "Blimey!" I mean, you win a competition, you get a luxury cruise, and then they expect you to eat with the crew!

I have done the QM2 cruise home and it is amazing. A real once in a lifetime experience. Amazing boat and plenty to do to fill the time.

My number 1 tip is to make sure you spend lots of time outside/on deck during the first 2 days at sea, because after that it gets pretty cold outside mid-Atlantic.

Thoroughly recommended by me

Been there, done that, amazing journey, amazing price.

Heat added.

The Costa Concordia was only about the journey, there was no destination...

Love cruising but 6 sea days in a row - no thanks!

We've been on a few Cruises and I can see why this would not appeal to everyone, but if I got a few nights stay in NY then it would be a no brainer. The food is amazing and I spend most of my evenings in the Casino anyway.

Don't think I'd want to be stuck on a boat for 7 days with a bunch of people from HUKD.

Did this with the wife and kids six years ago, it was a great trip and cost a lot more per person. Flew to New York with two suitcases, sailed back with 13. QMII is more of a liner than a cruise ship, its a little classier though not overwhelmingly so. Really enjoyed the peace and quiet, for such a big ship it was easy to find a quiet nook to relax with a book and a drink. Service was great as well. Saying all that, probably wouldn't be in a hurry to do it again, but it was certainly worth doing it once, definite heat on this one.

Well my three year old certainly enjoyed it! Great creche on board and the waiters used to take him off for a private tour of the kitchens so we could get on and eat our meals. Big enough of a ship that you can do what you want, huge night club on the one hand, casino and tea dances on the other. I thought it provided a great mix for all ages, there is even a video games arcade. I will echo another comment though, once you are at sea, its too cold for anything on deck apart from a bracing walk.

I was on this cruise ship for 3 weeks in January ............ biggest rip off ever. Do not have one good thing to say about it, except keep your money as why do you think they are having to try and tempt you with offers like this - you wouldn't get me on it free of charge ! Always last minute deals now to be had on this glorified ferry, use your hard earned cash on something else.

Norovirus throughout, ship like a floating hospital ..... stench was disgusting !

Full of Americans who don't like flying, give them a bone china cup of Earl Grey and a stale cream scone they are happy!

Have cruised endless times before so would have been the first to give praise where praise deserved.

I don't think I could stand to be on a ship with hundreds of upper class snobs.

You wouldn't be .... they have there own decks (Queens & Princess Grills) which are out of bounds unless you pay crazy prices, suites on higher decks and own restaurant etc, they very seldom come down to mix with steerage passengers!!

Plenty of tattoos and piercings walking around general public areas lol

Spot on! Except that the closet launderet to my cabin was in 'First Class' territory, so I did venture up there, I thought they were going to fetch the butler to see me off..

Most of the ship isn't like this, I thought it was a good atmosphere generally.

errrrr hardly can agree with a good atmosphere or indeed any atmosphere ...... thankfully no norovirus on your voyage then !!

Does the cruise route cross iceberg territory?

Seems like a good deal to me. Just a shame you don't get more time in New York. I've not done a cruise before, but my parents did one recently and loved it. They are old though. Also, nice avatar, jamming
