Queen Mary 2

Queen Mary 2
Queen Mary 2 is the most magnificent ocean liner ever built. Her every detail harkens to the Golden Age of Ocean Travel, while providing one of the most modern travel experiences on earth. From bow to stern, discover 14 spacious decks on which to relax and unwind; to indulge in pleasures and pursuits you never normally have time for. Opulent public areas, extravagant dining rooms, ballrooms, theatres, lounges...even the only Planetarium at sea. But words can only do such a lady so much justice. For to truly revel in the grandeur that is Queen Mary 2, you must sail with her.
Come and be transported from your everyday routine to a world that is larger than life. Queen Mary 2 is the largest, longest, tallest and most expensive ocean liner ever built, and she offers a cache of luxuries and innovations that is simply unprecedented. Three-quarters of her accommodations include private balconies. Thirteen bars and lounges take you from martinis and jazz to Guinness and sing-alongs. And ten restaurants including the celebrated Todd English offer the premier dining experience at sea.
A per passenger space ratio of 57.25 feet makes her one of the roomiest ships in the world. But even that cannot prepare you for the endless possibilities which occupy all this space. There are designer shops like Hermes and Chopard, classical plays and concerts, college-level seminars, a planetarium and two decks devoted to sports - a largesse which allows you the freedom to experience your own preferences and passions. Towering more than 200 feet above the waterline, Cunard's ship of superlatives is taking the adventure of cruising to breathtaking new heights... and, of course, lengths.

Onboard Facilities
Sail onboard Queen Mary 2 and you can have the adventure of a lifetime without even getting off the vessel. You can shop for diamonds in the exclusive boutiques, or indulge in the rejuvenating treatments of the relaxing spa with its stunning therapy pool, steam rooms and thermal suites. Athletes will find one of the best-equipped sports facilities at sea. If you're into health and fitness, there is a state-of-the-art gym and weight room. While those with a thirst for knowledge will find themselves well acquainted with the workshop and seminars at Cunard ConneXions, a virtual academy at sea where you can sign up for water colour class, attend book reviews, start to learn a language or indulge in a special interest.
Of course, there are all the expected activities from paddle tennis and deck quoits to a selection of swimming pools.
But it's the unexpected you may appreciate most of all, the plays, the readings, the art auctions; the golf simulators and the virtual rides into space, even British nannies for toddlers. In fact, there is something for everybody aboard. Well, more than just something.
Queen Mary 2 plays to a certain audience. People whose lives are diverse and experiences wide and who expect a certain level of sophistication on their evenings out. Glamour of course, but never glitz.
The Queens Room with its crystal chandeliers sets the stage for Royal Nights, grand, dazzling affairs like the Black and White Captain's Ball, the Pirates Ball and oh-so-very Ascot Ball.
Corks pop in the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar. Taps and fine wines are served in Sir Samuel's. Jazz sets the tone in the Chart Room, while a sultry rendition of Falling in Love Again drifts out from the Commodore Club with its wrap-around panoramas of a star-studded sky. With thirteen bars and lounges, Queen Mary 2 offers a symphony of entertainment.
In the gorgeous Royal Court Theatre there are lavish productions. For a more classical experience, listen to a famous soprano singing or watch scenes performed by actors from London's prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
Head for the Empire Casino where the mood is electric and then step on down to G32 where the dance floor is jumping.
In the Britannia and award-winning Queens and Princess Grills, Queen Mary 2's main dining rooms, you will enjoy food fit for a king - or a queen for that matter. Waiters trained in Cunard's White Start Academy attend to every detail. Sommeliers are pleased to share their recommendations from the largest wine collection afloat. Each evening you'll find an elaborate choice of offerings from Continental and spa cuisine to fusion and regional specialties, each artistically presented and artfully served.
As with liners of the past, each Queen Mary 2 stateroom is matched with a reserved table in one of the dining rooms. But there are many alternatives to tempt your mood and appetite. Culinary superstar Todd English offers his own twist on classic Mediterranean inspired specialties. Perhaps you feel like Osso Buco in La Piazza, British-style carved meats in The Carvery, wonderful tapas in Sir Samuel's Wine Bar, decorated like a Spanish bodega.
For a casual breakfast or lunch, try the Boardwalk Cafe or the mouth-watering buffets in Kings Court. Or you can avoid making any decision whatsoever by retiring to your own stateroom, where the room service menu is available 24 hours a day.
