Queen Mary 2 To Add Balcony Cabins, Single Cabins, and More Kennel Space
Written by: Cruise News
July 15, 2015 – As Cunard celebrates it’s 175 year history with the arrival in New York of its flagship, Queen Mary 2, the venerable cruise line has announced the next chapter of innovation and investment, introducing new designs and guest experiences to the world’s most iconic ocean liner.
Queen Mary 2 will undergo an extensive 25 day dry dock refurbishment at the Blohm+Voss Shipyard in Hamburg, Germany next summer, 27 May- 21 June 2016.
Three of the key developments were announced today, reflecting the changing needs of Cunard’s guests:
– 15 Single Staterooms will be added to the ship
– 30 additional Britannia Club Balcony Staterooms will be created on board. Guests traveling in these staterooms will be able to dine at a time of their own choosing in the dedicated Britannia Club restaurant, which will be expanded.
– Queen Mary 2 is already the only cruise liner in the world to offer dedicated kennels and currently carries up to 12 dogs and cats on each Transatlantic Crossing. To meet strong demand, 10 additional kennels will be added
With an eye to the detail, both a lamp post and a fire hydrant will be installed on the area of deck reserved for dog walking as part of the kennels development, so that dogs from either side of the pond will feel equally at home.
The newly announced additional accommodations go on sale today for Queen Mary 2 Summer sailings from late June 2016.
