Cunard announced in March further details for the Queen Mary 2’s re-mastering, the most significant refit ever undertaken by Carnival UK, as well as news about the Queen Victoria.
Firstly, the 90,049gt/2007 built Queen Victoria will be receiving Britannia Club staterooms during her next dry-dock scheduled for June 2017, due in part to the stateroom categories exceedingly popular appeal on the Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth. The 148,528gt/2003 built QM2’s remastering will go ahead 27th May- 21st June and will include the addition of 30 Britannia Club Staterooms, 15 new single staterooms, and an expansion of the ship’s dedicated kennel for cats and dogs.
The remainder of all staterooms will be refurbished ahead of the start of the ship’s 2017 World Cruise. Shared for the first time at Cunard’s press event were renderings showcasing new designs for the Queen Mary 2’s coveted and luxurious Queens grill duplex apartment and Penthouse Suites, as well as videos on Queen Mary 2’s redesign and culinary program.
