VALENCIA, Calif., Oct. 12, 2016 -- Since re-entering service after her remastering in June 2016, Queen Mary 2 has received several accolades and awards which underline the success of the significant work completed on the Cunard flagship including:
- Berlitz Cruising and Cruise Ships Guide 2017 awarded Queen Mary 2 ‘Top Large Resort Ship 2017’, ‘Most Luxurious Suites 2017’ and ‘Best Cruise Ship Spa 2017’
- Cruise Critic’s 2016 Editors’ Pick awarded Queen Mary 2, ‘Best Cruise Ship Refurbishment’
- Town & Country Magazine’s 2016 Cruise Awards awarded Cunard ‘Best for Onboard Activities, Mainstream Luxury’ and Queen Mary 2 ‘Best for Pet Lovers, Mainstream Luxury’
“Today we are proud not only of our great flagship Queen Mary 2 and the enhancements from over one million man hours during the refurbishment, but we are also proud of the crew and staff who continue to deliver the highest standards of Cunard’s famed White Star Service,” said Richard Meadows, President, Cunard North America. “It is an honor to be recognized by distinguished organizations such as Berlitz, Cruise Critic and Town & Country, and we are overjoyed with the positive feedback we have received from both loyal and first-time Cunarders.”
Queen Mary 2’s Remastering cost in the region of $132 million, and it was one of the most remarkable renovations undertaken by Cunard. The newly-renovated Queen Mary 2 takes its art deco design inspiration from the original Queen Mary, which debuted into service 80 years ago.
“Queen Mary 2 has become an icon,” said Douglas Ward, Author, Berlitz Cruise and Cruise Ships Guide. “Not a cruise ship, but an ocean liner – and the only one to offer regularly scheduled crossings of the North Atlantic throughout much of the year. Following her recent multi-million pound refit and refurbishment the ship is more an ocean liner than ever.
“With its British style and comfort, Queen Mary 2 is one of the best ways to enjoy a digital detox voyage into relaxation and self-indulgence. Queen Mary 2 is a real ocean pampership for all ages, and this is reflected in her high marks and rating.”
