The Ship

Queen Mary 2® — 2,592 Guests

Queen Mary 2 is simply the grandest, most magnificent ocean liner ever built. She's a true heir to
the timeless elegance, legacy and inspiration of the great Cunard liners of legend. You'll notice it
the moment you walk through her doors into her soaring Grand Lobby, and be awed from t he first
instance you experience the famous Cunard White Star Service SM. There is a team of outstanding
chefs and 10 dining venues in all, including the innovative Mediterranean cuisine of the Todd
English restaurant. As with the custom of ocean liners in the past, each Queen Mary 2 stateroom is
matched with a reserved table at a sea- view restaurant, complemented by the largest wine selection
afloat. Of course, you can always make reservations at one of the many optional dining
alternatives. Room service is also available 24 hours a day - complimentary of course!

Yet this traditional monarch also boasts the most modern luxuries and amenities. Rejuvenate body
and soul with an aromatherapy massage at the world renowned Q ueen Mary 2 Spa. An afternoon
of shopping in Cunard’s world-class boutiques will find you slipping into the perfect outfit for the
Royal Nights Ball and an evening of dancing and champagne under the stars.

In addition to dancing under the stars and discussing the stars onscreen with Rex Reed, t his
November 5th crossing will also feature discussion of the stars above through Cunard Insights®,
the award-winning enrichment program. Royal Astronomical Society speakers will be onboard to
present talks, lectures and debates. Star gazing on deck (weather permitting) will also be offered
with the use of telescopes with guided sessions from the experts. All guests are cordially invited to
either bring along binoculars or use the onboard telescope.
