Named in 2010 by Her Majesty the Queen, Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth is the newest member of the illustrious fleet. With the classic and familiar gleaming black hull, white super structure and red funnel she is recognised the world over and has become a firm favourite with customers.
Queen Elizabeth is the most modern of all the Cunard ships and offers the very latest modern technology mixed with a style that harks back to the golden age of cruising. The ship reflects the decor and grandeur that has been the signature of Cunard since the introduction of Mauretania in 1907. The traditions and style are present throughout this gleaming new vessel, reflected in the grand ball room and the opulent main multi-level Britannia dining room.
Many guests choose Cunard because of the atmosphere and aura of the long held traditions. Part of this is the formal nights, when the dress code is black tie, however, if guests wish to dine in a more informal setting the buffet restaurant provides this option.
The beauty of Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth is that she embodies the classical charm of the traditional Cunard ships and combines the facilities and vast range of options of a modern magnificent liner, whilst still paying tribute to her royal and historic heritage.
Dining onboard Queen Elizabeth encompasses a whole world of choices and traditions.
Taking afternoon tea is one of the great joys of cruising with Cunard, and the White Gloved service is an experience to indulge in.
The Garden lounge, inspired by the glass house at Kew Gardens, is the perfect setting for the champagne tea with mouth-watering cakes and delicate sandwiches.
Throughout the ship is a wide range of dining options but the Britannia restaurant is the main venue where the evening event takes place. On formal nights the guests wear black tie, and cocktail dresses or ball gowns, and there is a special atmosphere of celebration.
For guests staying in the Queens Grills or Princess Grills accommodation there are exclusive intimate restaurants, regally located on deck 11, to match the superior standard of stateroom.
From the Grills restaurants doors open out on to the courtyard with steps up to the Grills upper terrace and lounge with further exclusive areas for the Grills customers to enjoy.
Cunard guests revel in the grandeur of the formal nights and the Queen’s Room comes to life with ball room dancing on the 1000 square foot dance floor.
With paintings and murals of a regal theme and with opulent décor, it is a fabulous setting for a special occasion.
The Royal Court Theatre is art deco in style and seats more than 800 guests, with private boxes and comfortable seating. Outside on deck there are games that hark back to the ‘30s, such as bowls, croquet and paddle tennis.
