Cunard Debuts Refitted Queen Mary 2

Valencia-based Cunard Line Ltd. has completed a $132 million refit of its flagship ocean liner Queen Mary 2, the company announced Thursday. Sailing into its U.S. homeport in Brooklyn on Wednesday, the remodeled Queen Mary 2’s new design and features include the addition of 50 staterooms, refurbished Queens Grill and Princess Grill suites and restaurants, and redesigned buffet area. The refit, based on the original Queen Mary, also added 12 kennels for dogs and cats. The Queen Mary 2 is the only passenger vessel to carry pets and even has a kennel master responsible for feeding, walking and taking care of pets onboard. “The remastering is a testament to Cunard’s attention to detail, incorporating inspiration from our past that continues to propel the powerful Cunard story, which we think will strongly resonate with today’s travelers,” David Noyes, chief executive of Cunard, said in a statement. Cunard owns and operates luxury cruises like Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth and operates as a subsidiary of Carnival Corp. of Miami.
