Cunard Queen Mary 2

Cunard’s iconic cruise liner Queen Mary 2 has been unveiled at Southampton following a £90million makeover.

The remastered liner has undergone one of the most significant refurbishments undertaken by a major passenger shipping line.

The Queen Mary 2 now features contemporary interior designs and guest experiences, many of which take inspiration from the original Queen Mary, which launched at the height of the Art Deco movement in the 1930s.

Some of the transformations include redesigned public spaces and restaurants, including the makeover of the former Winter Garden into the Carinthia Lounge and the restructuring of the Kings Court, the ship’s buffet area.

A further 30 Britannia Club staterooms have been added, as well as 15 Britannia single staterooms and five Britannia inside staterooms.

Alongside new dining experiences, guests can sample a unique collection of 486 fine wines and a range of Ports, dating back to 1840.

Cunard senior vice-president Simon Palethorpe said: “Remastering Queen Mary 2 honours the heritage and iconic status of our magnificent ship to take our passengers forward into a new era of ocean travel.”
