The dining conversation (Cunard- Queen Mary 2)

So, 3 days ago I called Cunard with a simple question about our dining options. My primary question was whether or not we could dine in the other 2 main dining rooms during meal times (I knew we had first seating in the Britannia restaurant, per request).

The pleasant customer service advisor  (I could not understand her name enough to share it here) not only told me extensively about the availability of the other main dining rooms (princess grill, queens grill and Britannia club restaurants) that have an open come and go as you please atmosphere, but proceeded to tell me about several other options available to us: 

  • Kings court is open 24 hours and is buffet style, they have an alternating availability of Asian, Indian, Italian and American (smokehouse) cuisines. 
  • The verandah restaurant has French cuisine, but I got the impression they were a separate, higher cost.
  • Boardwalk cafe may be a good option for a 12 yr old according to the agent, basically the offerings there have a fast food feel…hot dogs, hamburgers, French fries and soft drinks. I’m not sure we’ll dine here, but we may try it one afternoon if we happen to get in a mood.
  • Carinthia lounge was mentioned, but not elaborated on, from what I can find, they have a varied, if not somewhat eclectic menu. 
  • Golden lion is the signature pub on the ship. They serve a classic British pub fare. I can see me hitting this a time or 2.
  • Queens room was something she was very excited to share with me, the ship has afternoon tea every day from 330-430, complete with finger sandwiches, pastries and scones with a wide assortment of preserves and jams. (I hope to hit this every day)
  • Room service has an extensive menu, and is also available 24 hours a day.

I look forward to this part of the trip almost as much as actually being in Great Britain for the first time.

Yesterday a post they shared made me want to explore something else about the ship…activities!

I definitely want to take the fencing lessons 🙂

  1. The Fencing is excellent as I have seen it on QM2 and QV (April 2017 ).
    The instructor takes you from exercises as in lunging , turning, hopping so by day three you are now learning to exercise the foils and then working with a partner. Go for it
