Queen Mary 2 – Five Reasons to Cruise With Her

For us really the number one reason to cruise with Queen Mary 2, the most important thing for us, is the excellent child care. Really it was just excellent and just as described in the brochure with fully trained and qualified staff. We have heard horror stories of other cruise lines non-existent child care, it says that it has in the brochure but when you go there isn’t any, but Queen Mary 2’s child care was up there with the best. 

It allowed us to drop our two year old Sunset dinner cruise phu quoc off to the Play Zone for a greater part of each day we were on the cruise. So we went to breakfast then we dropped him off at 0900 and then picked him up at 1200 for lunch. Then we dropped him off again at 1400 and picked him up again at 1700, went to the Children’s food area in Kings Court and then we dropped him off again at 1900, as we were on a late sitting in the Britannia Restaurant. 

So we were able to go to dinner, then go and see a show and then go back and pick him up which for us was usually about 2230. So this allowed us to really brilliant vacation as we had time to ourselves and our two year old just really loved it too. So much so that we had to increase his nursery hours when we returned home as all he kept saying was “Play, play”. So the Queen Mary 2 Play Zone (the nursery) was and is the best thing ever for anyone wanting to go on holiday with a toddler. There is also the Zone for older kids where there are organised activities for the older kids.

To experience the formality of dinner in the Queen Mary 2 Britannia Restaurant. We loved dressing up and as we had our son with us we were given a table for two with a high chair so that he could join us. We always have had a late sitting as we like to have a leisurely dinner. We only used the high chair once for our 2 year old son – for Christmas Day.

To See the Queen Mary 2 Planetarium. It really is just fantastic as it is a proper Planetarium in its own theatre – they also show films here. But you must go and see one of the Planetarium shows as it will make you think more about the stars that you ever did before. So the Planetarium is a great place to go, they did an amazing job in putting it together.

To enjoy the Queen Mary 2 Canyon Ranch Spa. It really must be the best spa on any cruise liner. The products they have are Canyon Ranch Spa own ones which means they are quality products. Last time we sailed on Queen Mary 2 they also had these products in the staterooms. The staff in the Spa just know their stuff. Need a massage or just somewhere to relax then this is the place to go.

To experience the Queen Mary 2 Royal Court Theatre not only to see a show but to see the speakers. They really are interesting and although you can watch them on the QM2 TV in your room, to actually see them live is better and you will be able to get some free stuff off them at the end of their talk and also have the opportunity to speak to them.
