Queen Mary 2 Remastered
Queen Mary 2’s remastered interiors have taken years to plan and design. World-class designers have created elegant lounges, restaurants, bars, staterooms and suites that are both contemporary and reflective of Cunard’s illustrious past. Take a look at our videos and images and admire the total transformation.
Fine Dining on board Queen Mary 2
The Queen’s Grill and Princess Grill are the more exclusive venues on board the Queen Mary 2. The incredible dishes and impeccable service are likely to surpass any expectations. The Britannia Restaurant is the largest on board and guests will be wowed as they enter this two-tiered dining room via its grand staircase. For a more relaxed alternative, guests can attend Kings Court, which is a self-service restaurant during the day but in the evenings transforms into four delightful intimate specialist restaurants.
One of the highlights of a Cunard voyage is the Afternoon Tea served in the Queens Room where attentive-staff serve this fine English tradition.
The Royal Court Theatre hosts the Cunard Royal Dancers and Singers as they star in lavish productions in this elegant theatre.
It simply wouldn’t be a real cruise without dancing and the Queens Room is the perfect ballroom with its spacious floor and glittering chandeliers. For those who prefer something more contemporary, there’s a nightclub which hosts theme nights covering every era of pop.
A Range of Activities
Many cruise passengers have enjoyed evenings under the stars but on the Queen Mary 2 guests can get up close to the celestial bodies in the only planetarium at sea.
The Canyon Ranch Spa Club takes a holistic approach to health and offers a range of treatments, advice on healthy living and personal fitness training.
There are over 8000 books to be found in the ship’s striking library including the latest bestsellers and an array of reference books. This comfortable and refined space is the perfect place to enjoy a book or just quietly enjoy the stunning views over the bow.
The Maritime Quest is found throughout the ship’s corridors and pictures and captions showcase Cunard’s rich maritime history. Highlights include the Stars Aboard photo gallery which features pictures of some of the most prominent figures who crossed the Atlantic in the golden age of cruising.
