While the Queen Mary 2 was in Melbourne I was lucky enough to enjoy lunch and a walk around on this lovely ship. The first impression is the size of the ship. At 151,400 tons and nearly four football fields in length it is an imposing ship. When walking onboard it is like stepping back in time. Cunard, the owner of Queen Mary 2, is aiming to bring back the classic age of cruising back. Highlights of a cruise onboard include afternoon tea served in the Queens Room, the Royal Court Theatre, where you can enjoy nightly Broadway style shows and dining in one of the restaurants onboard. Each cruise includes a number of formal nights when you get to dress up in black tie.
Queen Mary 2‘s facilities include fifteen restaurants and bars, five swimming pools, a casino, a ballroom, a theatre, and the first planetarium at sea. There are also kennels on board, as well as a nursery.
