“Brrr!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

It was freezing cold inside. So much that we couldn't wait to get out of the Princess Diana exhibit. I would advise you to wear a warm jacket if you visit there.

“Urgh! Calling this an "attraction" is stretching the truth”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Spare me, please! This place cost about USD24 each to enter an old smelly badly maintained cruise ship. There was no guide supplied just a map with a few scribbles about what to "see". But seriously the best thing about this floating box is the view from it. It was kind of creepy too. We asked about the audio guide - for an additional charge - the customer service person in charge of them said, and I quote "they have not been updated for a very long time and are not really worth it, I suggest you get lost on your own". Hmmm. It was okay but the shops were twee, maybe not if you are from the US but to English people the scottish heritage shop is just silly.

“Truly unique experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

Staying aboard this grand lady who once traversed the Atlantic and took troops to battle was a truly unique experience. Enjoyed the ship's ambiance and the ability to revisit the travel experience from a bygone day. Our cabin, containing many of it's original features, was charming (each stateroom is a little different). The tubs are very narrow and the water pressure for showering leaves a bit to be desired. The staff were very accommodating and helpful and consistently went above and beyond to ensure a positive experience. Maintenance came to repair our a/c and even went to the front desk and returned with a new room key when he found out one of ours was not working! We really enjoyed our stay!

“Enjoyed Just Wandering”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Rather than taking one of the tours, I bought a $15 ticket, which enabled me to explore the Queen Mary on my own and I received a $15 dining credit. The food wasn't special, but the atmosphere was novel. I was satisfied with my choice to look around on my own, relying on signs for information. People desiring a lot of information may not be. I rode a red Passport bus for free from downtown.
