Cunard Announces Details on Remastering Queen Mary 2

There comes a time in every lady's life when a bit of a touch-up is due to keep her looking fresh and the same goes for ships. With that in mind, Cunard has announced new enhancements planned for Queen Mary 2's remastering, the most significant refit ever undertaken by Carnival UK.

Queen Mary 2, which will be in dry dock from May 27 to June 21, will see 30 additional Britannia Club Staterooms, 15 new single staterooms, and an expansion of the ship's dedicated kennel for cats and dogs. All staterooms will be remastered by the start of the ship's 2017 World Cruise.

"Cunard was the innovator of the luxury suite category, and this remastering will further showcase the richness of ship's stateroom design, intimate dining experiences, and White Star Service," commented Richard Meadows, President, Cunard North America.

In the newly debuted video below, Queen Mary 2's interior decorators delve into what it took to stay true to Cunard's heritage. As the original Queen Mary celebrates her 80th anniversary this year, Queen Mary 2’s remastering has taken inspiration from the iconic legend.

Cunard, which found inspiration not only in Queen Mary, but also in its guests, announced that in conjuncture with the remastering of all of its staterooms and suites, it will also introduce tea and coffee makers in each cabin.

"Guest feedback was especially important as we explored the redesign of the staterooms," said Angus Struthers, Vice President of Marketing. "We believe the new designs on board provide a more distinctive Cunard character and will elevate the guest experience."

"During our 175-year history, Cunard earned a reputation for being the arbiter of style and taste. The remastering of Queen Mary 2 continues this tradition by the thoughtful contemporizing of the product, while maintaining the refined design aesthetics and service standards that are deeply based in British style and refinement," said David Noyes, Cunard CEO. "The combination of our keen attention to detail, and incorporating inspirations from our past will continue to propel the powerful Cunard story, which we think will strongly resonate with today's discerning travelers."
