Cunard unveils renovation plans for Queen Mary 2

Cunard has announced an extensive renovation of Queen Mary 2 early next year which will include an extensive overhaul of every suite, the line announced Tuesday.

As can be seen in the newly released renderings, the iconic ship’s 172 Queens Grill and Princess Grill suites, as the top cabins on the vessel are known, will feature a new, contemporary look with muted tones and elegant textures.

The ship’s Queens Grill and Princess Grill restaurants, which are open exclusively to passengers staying in the respective suite categories, also will undergo a major revamp, as can be seen in the drawings.

Cunard says the suites will be reconfigured to maximize space and feature subtle references to Cunard’s history including bespoke carpeting inspired by the rugs from the original Queen Mary.
