Queen Mary 2

What was the inspiration behind Cunard’s Queen Mary 2?

We are excited to share this video from Chairman of Carnival Corporation, Micky Arison, who fondly reflects on his early life and inspirations, leading him to relaunch the Cunard© brand, and ultimately to bringing his vision of flagship Queen Mary 2 to life.


Queen Mary 2 unveiled the next chapter of Cunard innovation and investment in June 2016, when she received a significant refit that introduced enhanced interior designs and guest experiences.

101 Things To Do on Queen Mary 2


The Verandah

Exactly 80 years after the first Cunard Verandah Grill went to sea on Queen Mary in May 1936 the latest incarnation of The Verandah has proudly opened on board Queen Mary 2 after her significant refit.


Contemporary, premium French cuisine is now offered in the new Verandah which is a light and elegant space offering impeccable service with attention to every detail. An unforgettable dining experience for a surcharge and a bar are available for pre- and post-meal drinks.

Kings Court

Kings Court has been completely transformed with a more open, intuitive central buffet area and reconfigured seating arrangements to create a relaxed self-service experience with a refined yet informal ambiance.


With bright and fresh finishes, Art Deco inspired chandeliers, dramatic artworks, areas of warm timber flooring and the use of mirrors to accentuate the ocean view, the new sophisticated interior design perfectly complements the culinary enhancements developed for Kings Court. This continues to offer much-desired informal dining options throughout the day, from enticing hot and cold buffet options to light snacks, afternoon treats and alternative evening dining cuisines such as Indian, Italian, Pan Asian and Tex Mex.

Carinthia Lounge

The Winter Garden has been transformed into an elegant, airy and versatile new venue, named after Cunard's beloved Carinthia ships. Carinthia Lounge features a dedicated patisserie counter and a special champagne Afternoon Tea experience. When the sun sets, the atmosphere evolves into an inviting evening spot where we pair premium wines with complimentary tasting plates and feature relaxed entertainment.

Carinthia Lounge now features a fresh colour palette of powder blue, cream and gold, and versatile seating layouts including dining chairs and tables near the new patisserie and chic curved lounge seating under decorative lights. The spacious venue also features a wine wall, vertical metal Art Deco-inspired screens, and a dark walnut timber dance floor.

With a carefully phased refurbishment plan into 2017, all Britannia staterooms will eventually feature an elegant new interior design, new carpet patterns that reference designs from the original Queen Mary and bold soft furnishings with imperial blue and antiqued gold highlights to honour Cunard’s art deco heritage.

Britannia Club staterooms

30 additional Britannia Club staterooms were added to Deck 13, as well as a comprehensive refurbishing of all pre-existing Britannia Club cabins. Queen Mary 2's grand size assures that the added accommodations will not affect the plentiful amount of public space. The new designs include softer colour tones to enhance the feeling of space, as well as new contemporary carpet patterns inspired by the geometric diamond designs seen on the original Queen Mary. Britannia Club guests now enjoy a pillow concierge menu, as well as single-seating dining in the Britannia Club restaurant.
