Testimonials from Past Guests

Q Cruise + Travel (formerly Cruise Holidays Chicago on Magnificent Mile)'s unique combination of focus, expertise and friendly service has resulted in many happy guests, some of which call us the "best travel agency in Chicago" or the "best Cunard travel agents they've ever worked with".

We are grateful for that feedback and for the trust our guests place in us.  We commit to continuing to provide them - and you - with levels of service that are unmatched by cruise line call centers, online travel agencies or "general" travel agents.

Here is what some of our guests said about the service provided by Q Cruise + Travel:

Steven F., United Kingdom:

"...both my wife and I had a fantastic trip and Queens Class accommodation, food and the personal service was something else.

I always said that flying first class across the Atlantic was the only way to travel, well after the Cunard experience I am literally eating my words.  If per chance I am asked to work again in America, my only travel choice will be Cunard.

May I thank Q Cruise and Travel for the seamless process in prioritising our cabins and upgrades thereafter. The before and aftercare attention in ensuring we did not have to worry about virtually anything and your promptness in responding to any questions asked was first class.

Personally may I thank David into making my wife and I feel that we were the only people that was booking a cruise across the Atlantic, his knowledge, attentiveness and repartee with the Customer should be highly recommended.

Thank you again for a wonderful time, it will always be remembered and my wife has over 630 photograph’s to prove it."

Susan B., New York, NY: 

"I wanted to tell you how pleased we were with all Kevin's help in advising and helping us to book and prepare for our Queen Mary 2 crossing! He did it twice as the first time we had to cancel!

It's easy to complain but I want to do the opposite and offer a well deserved compliment to Kevin! If we go again on the QM2 we will definitely turn to Kevin."

David H., Herndon, VA:

"As we discussed on the phone, the QM2 crossing was wonderful. I would encourage anyone to do it! The ship is magnificent and the service was impeccable.

Thank you for all your help."

John W., Stillwater, MN:

"Again, thank you so much for your expert advice and exceptional service that made our Queen Mary 2 / Queen Elizabeth 2 tandem crossing such a spectacular trip for us. I’m so glad that we booked through your agency because your expertise and knowledge of not only the Cunard ships but especially our destinations in Paris and Nancy made a hassle-free and thoroughly spectacular anniversary adventure. It was the trip of a life time thanks to the thoughtfulness and attentive service we received from you. You were there when we needed you every step of the way – especially in Nancy when we couldn’t get the train kiosk to work! We can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us. Can’t wait to do it again!" 

Linda K. St. Petersburg, FL:

"Thanks so much for everything you did. You got us a great stateroom (we saw dolphins from our balcony one day) and had lots of advice and helpful tips. And of course, thanks for the coffee mugs. We didn't buy many souvenirs onboard so it's very nice to have these. ... Overall, great trip. And great travel agent!"

Laura S., New York City, NY:

"...allow me to sing the praises of Kevin, whose presence on your team makes us truly grateful. He has been thoroughly proficient, patient, skillful and understanding in guiding us through our forthcoming trip. He has assisted us through an unfortunate cancellation and then a reinstatement of altered plans.

I have enjoyed working with him via telephone and e-mail where his talents also include good humor and clear explanation skills."

Bob E., Fort Lauderdale, FL:

"I have to say you are the best travel agent that I have ever worked with.  I wish I had tons of time/money so you could arrange many trips for me." 

Brian F., Houston, TX:

"I just wanted to say thank you once again. Both of you have been wonderful and have REALLY given us some great ideas / suggestions for our trip. I would have been lost trying to find hotels like this w/out your knowledge and research. You really listened to my thoughts, and came up with some great places."

Judy S., Chicago, IL:

"You all were great in setting everything up."

Sara S., New York City, NY:

"All QM2 arrangements went without a hitch and the onboard credit was a great extra - thank you for that.  I would definitely book with your company again as you were very helpful indeed."

David C., Naples, FL:

"Thank you for your outstanding efforts since this process began in summer 2009. We are appreciative and could recommend you in a heart beat. ... also were attentive and professional. You have a terrific team."
