Queen Mary 2 Cruises

4.5
(from 215 verified customers)

Queen Mary 2 is the flagship of the Cunard Fleet. One of the three ships making up the entirety of the Cunard fleet. Launched in 2004 and scheduled to be refurbished in November 2020. She is the world’s only true ocean liner, making her perfectly placed to make the iconic but notoriously rough Transatlantic Crossing. Affectionately known as the 'QM2’, she carries 2691 passengers making her Cunard’s largest ship. Despite being a larger vessel, you will rarely find yourself in a crowd, except perhaps at prime dinner time or a popular theatre show. Highlights of the ship include the largest ballroom at sea and 5-star entertainment nightly in the Royal Court Theatre. Queen Mary 2 is elegant and a true icon to sail on. She honours traditional such as the British tradition of afternoon tea, which includes white-gloved waiters who serve finger sandwiches and scones with cream in the Queens Rooms. Specially commissioned artwork is visible in public rooms, corridors, staterooms and lobbies. Queen Mary 2 is one of the few ships that has a class system, linking staterooms with dining venues.

Queen Mary 2 is a one of a kind beauty, in a league of her own. This flagship is a purpose built ocean liner designed to weather the seas of the North Atlantic. On a QM2 cruise ordinary travellers can feel like royalty, she offers the finest grandeur and décor of any ship built to date. You will experience the signature ‘White Star’ service complete with white gloves and classic charm.

Decorated in chandeliers, marble detail and rich fabric around the ship, you will also find more than 5000 specially commissioned works of art featured in public rooms, corridors, staterooms and lobbies. Head to the Promenade deck if you are looking for a coffee or have a look at the boutique shops. Enjoy a refreshing drink at one of the many bars on this deck, or simply curl up with a good book in many of the comfortable sitting areas. QM2 has a state of the art Planetarium, the only one at sea. The dome can send you on an epic voyage around the solar system, show 3D films, concerts and lectures. Find inspiration in the most impressive library at sea, you may wish to sign up to the Cunard Book Club where the ship’s librarian will host thought provoking literary discussions. It’s important to know that the dress code is enforced onboard, during the day you are expected to be covered, in stylish casual wear. The evenings you will wear smart casual attire or for formal evenings it will be black tie to coincide with the gala nights.

Clean cruising tip

My favourite place on the elegant QM2 are the thermal suites. Buy the package for the whole cruise so you can go whenever you want. It is so relaxing.

Other specialty restaurants are available for dinner at either the Kings Court or a sectioned off area at the Lido restaurant, offering a rotation of Mexican, Asian and Italian style cuisines. All specialty restaurants are charged a small additional surcharge and be sure to book ahead so you don't miss out. Dining in the evenings will be smart casual or formal, check your daily planner each day for that information. If you are looking for a more casual dining option, the self-serve Lido Restaurant is available 24 hours a day offering a delicious menu that rotates daily, mirroring what is available in the Britannia restaurant. 24 hour room service is also available, it is a real treat to wake up to breakfast on your balcony.
