Queen Mary 2

 
Queen Mary 2
Classic Cunard hallmarks weave throughout Queen Mary 2: sweeping staircases, soaring public rooms, a Grand Ballroom, a 360 degree promenade deck. With one staff member per couple, Cunard's renowned White Star ServiceSM is also assured.

The most anticipated ocean liner in the world also comes with an unprecedented cache of luxuries and innovations. Three-quarters of her staterooms have balconies. Lavish two-story duplexes even have their own private exercise equipment. Exciting restaurants like Todd English and Cunard's renowned Grills create the premier dining experience at sea.

A space ratio of 57.25 makes her one of the roomiest vessels anywhere. Even that can't prepare you for the endless possibilities which occupy all this space - 14 decks of sports facilities, shops, bars, lounges, 5 pools and no fewer than 10 restaurants, a largesse which allows you the freedom to experience your own preferences and passions. Rejuvenate at the celebrated Canyon Ranch SpaClub(R). Or how about the classic British deck game of quoits?

Try something novel. Learn something new! Cunard ConneXionsSM is almost like a college at sea, taking into account, of course, that you're on vacation. Or take a virtual ride into space at IlluminationsSM
