The Queen Mary 2’s main dining room is spread over three floors, allowing guests to make a regal entrance and sweep down the grand staircase.
Serving Mediterranean cuisine from one of America’s leading chefs – Todd English received the Robert Mondavi Award for Culinary Excellence. Reservations required.
Serving a casual breakfast, lunch and late-night buffet, this restaurant transforms into four intimate dining venues in the evenings, serving Asian, British, Italian and chefs specialities. Reservations required.
Golden Lion Pub
A British-style pub where classic pub lunches, such as fish and chips and cottage pie, are served alongside fine lagers, ales and pub snacks.

Serving lunch in a casual atmosphere near the Sun Deck.
Serving a proper English Afternoon Tea, with scones, pastries and finger sandwiches.
There are numerous way for guests to entertain themselves when not on deck, including taking a traditional afternoon tea, exploring the art gallery, with works by 20th century masters like Dali, Chagall and Picasso, and learning ballroom dancing from the professionals.
Then there’s the library, bookstore and book club, for literary discussion, while writing workshops take place in the computer centre. Game players may like to spend time in the Monte Carlo-inspired Empire Casino or proving their skill at bridge and board games.
Or, if you just want to sit back and relax, head for one of the Cunard Insights lectures, to Iluminations for a virtual trip into space or to catch the latest movie or take in a play by the graduates of the Royal Academy of Dramatics Arts – with whom you can also join in a workshop. Also onboard are top boutiques, such as Harrods and Hermés, for the adults, and a play zone for the kids.
In the evenings, guests can wile away the hours in the Chart Room, listening to live jazz, in the Commodore Club, sipping martinis and listening to the tinkle of ivories, trying their luck in the Empire Casino, watching musicals and performers in the Royal Court Theatre, practising karaoke in the Golden Lion Pub, catching a move in Illuminations or simply having a coffee in Sir Samuel’s.
For the more extravagant, however, the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar, G32 nightclub or one of the Royal Nights’ spectacular themed balls in the Queens Room, might be more tempting.
Onboard Queen Mary 2 guests can enjoy a large range of enrichment and lecture opportunities. Among them the chance to study renaissance art with a leading museum curator, study acting alongside the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, learn about oceanography and life in the sea, as well as discovering the secrets of the universe in the planetarium.
