Queen Mary 2

One of the most famous and recognisable cruise ships sailing today, Cunard's Queen Mary 2 is the embodiment of traditional cruising. Famous for the classic transatlantic route from Southampton to New York and back, there are few more impressive sights than this iconic vessel against a Manhattan backdrop. Whether it’s transatlantic cruises to New York or circumnavigating the globe on a world cruise, Queen Mary 2 sails with impeccable style, oozing quality, tradition and sophistication. From dining in the opulent restaurants to elegant entertainment as you traverse the Atlantic Ocean, you'll never forget your time onboard this world-famous ship.

Many of the dining options onboard Queen Mary 2 are included in your cruise fare, meaning you can take advantage of delicious cuisine throughout the day without having to worry about picking up the bill. Britannia is the main dining room onboard the ship, offering traditional cruise ship dining with set meal times, multicourse meals and attentive, professional staff. Alternatively, casual dining venue Kings Court boasts an excellent choice of dishes from around the world, as well as the option to choose an a la carte menu. Meanwhile, those after a light bite to eat will enjoy the snacks, pastries and gourmet lunches on offer at Carinthia Lounge. There's even a British-style pub, The Golden Lion, which serves up tempting pub grub that's guaranteed to please.

However, if you want to try something different, there are also some speciality venues available onboard:

  • The Verandah- an elegant steakhouse offering surf and turf classics, exceptionally prepared and presented.
  • A La Carte at Kings Court- expect a different themed menu every evening, from Mexican to Pan-Asian to Italian.

Daytime Entertainment

Your time spent onboard Queen Mary 2 is all about experiencing the joy of transatlantic ocean travel, meaning you won't find the same action-packed activities available onboard resort-style ships. But this doesn't mean you won't enjoy your free time spent onboard. From relaxing with a book in the library, settling in for a game in the card room or heading off on a stargazing journey in the Planetarium, or even fencing, there's no shortage of ways to stay busy.

In addition, with a luxurious spa and gym, swimming pools, hot tubs, tennis court and jogging track, your holiday can be as active or as relaxed as you'd like.

Evening Entertainment

Entertainment onboard Queen Mary 2 is extravagant and plentiful, with something to suit everyone. The main Theatre is the Royal Court and is draped in plush red velvet, with comfortable seats for the audience to sink into. The live musicals, comedy and classical concerts are a wonderful post-dinner treat.

Another much-loved occasion is formal night, when the Queen’s ballroom fills with waltzing couples in black tie and ball gowns, and the string quartet play while champagne and cocktails are circulated by attentive waiters. For those wishing to carry the night on into the early hours, the Casino is a fun and sociable place to chance your luck.

Family

For those embarking on ocean travel as a family, Queen Mary 2 will keep the younger guests happy thanks to the onboard kids clubs. At the Play Zone, for two to seven year olds, and The Zone, for eight to seventeen year olds, the range of arts and crafts, sports, computer games and other activities on offer will keep them having fun and making friends from morning until evening.

Travelling with pets

Those with beloved pets need not worry about leaving them at home when off on a Cunard cruise, as Queen Mary 2 is the only liner with permanent facilities for furry friends. A dedicated kennel master keeps an eye on pets at sea, allowing owners to stop by and say hello during their voyage.
