Cunard’s iconic flagship, Queen Mary 2 has received quite an honorable award in this year’s Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards. The magazine asked readers to evaluate individual ships on a variety of areas, including accommodations, dining, service, itineraries, destinations, excursions, activities, and value. Queen Mary 2 came out on the very top on the list of Mega-Ship Cruise Lines.
The vessel is the only ocean liner currently sailing regular transatlantic service between New York and Southampton, England. She recently underwent an extensive renovation that cost around $132 million. It included new staterooms, expanded kennels, new dining venues and public spaces, and new carpeting.
Of the award, Richard Meadows, President of Cunard, North America said “We are honored to receive this designation from the readers of Travel + Leisure, who are some of the most discerning travelers in the world. We pride ourselves on the level of service and offerings we provide our guests and our ongoing commitment to offer world-class luxury in the cruise industry.”
