Paul when you say the only transatlantic worth taking is on QM2, what about the new Queen Victoria; I would assume the two ships would be close in comparison.
Sorry I didnt get back to you. The new Queen Elizabeth is probably close in experience to the QM2, but she is a smaller ship. There is just somnething special about the QM2 since she is a true ocean liner - she is a very majestic ship on the inside and somehow that whole aura translates to how you feel on the ship.
However - in terms of activities offered; enrichment lectures, music, entertainment, in fact the new Queen Elzabeth has more theater entertainment than even QM2 - so I am sure you would enjoy it for a transatlantic.
