SHIPS AT THE SHOW C R U I S E


QUEEN MARY 2 CUNARD


CLIA VISIT DAY: WEDNESDAY, MAY 24


BRIEFLY: Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 made headlines when it launched in 2004 as the largest cruise ship in the world, and was back in the news in June last year when it emerged from a £90 million makeover.


WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR:


It’s been three years since Queen Mary 2 took part in the Clia conference so this is a good


opportunity for agents to either see the ship for the first time or refresh their memories. There are fresh carpets and artwork but more important things to note during a tour include extra Britannia Plus cabins, new single rooms and the redesigned Carinthia Lounge, (the former Winter Garden,) which is now a favourite place for a light breakfast and lunch, or just to read the paper and catch up with friends.


AT A GLANCE lThe King’s Court self-service now has individual serving stations in place of a long buffet counter. In the evening, pop-up restaurants alternatively serve Cajun, Mexican, Asian, Indian and Italian menus. Passengers must book and there is a charge.


l The Todd English speciality restaurant is now called The Verandah and serves a French-inspired menu with langoustine ravioli, venison tartare and guinea hen.


lThe Princess and Queens Grill Restaurants have been refurbished. These are reserved for passengers in the Grill suites, who have a pre-allocated table but can eat at a time of their choosing. Grill passengers also have access to a private lounge and outdoor terrace. Those staying in Queens Grill suites enjoy perks including butler service and a free minibar.


lAmong features added in the refit is a port wall where lovers of the fortified wine can splash out on a vintage bottle or take part in sommelier-led tastings.


KEY SELLING POINTS lQueen Mary 2 was built to cross the Atlantic in all weathers so while a smooth ride can never be guaranteed, its deep draft does a far better job than most cruise ships at keeping on an even keel.


lWith its history, heritage, ballroom dancing, formal nights and set dining (for Britannia-class passengers only), Queen Mary 2 is perfect for clients who enjoy the cruising traditions.


l Fifteen modern single cabins were added during the refit, making the transatlantic experience a more affordable option for customers travelling alone.
