Todd English, favoured celebrity chef to the stars, has a restaurant on board the Queen Mary II. Advance bookings are a must, and well worth it to experience English’s signature Mediterranean style cuisine with a delectable twist. The Queen Mary 2 also has a range of speciality restaurants and casual eateries, from a light meal at the Board Walk Café or traditional hearty pub fare to afternoon tea with cakes and sandwiches in the Queens Room. Speciality restaurants include a per-head cover charge, though the Galley Restaurant charges for wine only.
Complimentary 24 hour room service is available to all passengers. Tea, coffee water and fruit juice is complimentary throughout all liners. Alcohol and speciality coffees and tea are charged to your ship account.
Cunard asks for notification about particular dietary requirements no later than 6 months before departure or at the time of booking, whichever comes first.
The dining and onboard dress code is resort casual during the day, though as a premium cruise line you can expect fellow passengers to be at the smart end of casual. During the evening it is recommended to dress as you would to dine in a fine restaurant.
