Cunard guests will soon be able to savour numerous new culinary experiences on board the flagship Queen Mary 2. Already renowned and acclaimed for creating some of the finest cuisine served in the most glamourous surroundings at sea, we are introducing new dining options as well as a raft of enhancements to each of the liner’s existing restaurants during the ship’s major refit taking place in June.
Queen Mary 2 Remastered will see the creation of the entirely new Carinthia Lounge serving alternative breakfast and lunchtime offerings together with bespoke premium coffees; a new Verandah Restaurant evoking memories of the famous Grill on the original Queen Mary; a completely transformed Kings Court Buffet; new Queens and Princess Grill menus and completely refurbished restaurants for guests staying in the suites and a new Smokehouse alternative dining concept.
In addition, menus in the existing Britannia Restaurant and Golden Lion pub, together with Cunard’s famous Afternoon Tea selection served in the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar, are all being refreshed.
Many of the new menus are being finessed during months of detailed research at a specially-commissioned new Development Kitchen which has opened in Cunard’s homeport of Southampton. Here, teams of chefs have been working with other culinary experts and suppliers to create a wide range of new dishes to be served on board.
