Detailed Reviews of Stateroom & Suite Categories

Britannia Inside Staterooms

Britannia Standard Inside Staterooms aboard Queen Mary 2 offer a delightful blend of comfort and style, making them a haven for guests during their transatlantic voyage. With sizes ranging from approximately 157 to 194 square feet, these staterooms are adequately spacious compared to the average inside cabins on many cruise ships, which measure between 145 to 185 square feet. Despite the overall luxurious feel, one minor drawback is the shower curtain in the bathroom, which doesn’t quite match the high standards of premium land-based hotels or the luxury expected at sea.

Located in various convenient positions throughout the ship, each Britannia Standard Inside stateroom is thoughtfully designed with an array of features and luxurious amenities. Guests can choose from Early, Late, and Open Dining options in the Britannia Restaurant, ensuring flexibility and convenience. The staterooms boast a Cunarder bed, configurable to either a king-size or two single beds, providing a restful sleep after a day of activities. The bathrooms include a walk-in shower, equipped with Penhaligon’s toiletries, adding a touch of luxury to your daily routine.

Additional amenities include satellite TV with basic music, film and news channels – interactive functionality with movies on demand is a feature we would expect for a ship of this calibre. You will also find a vanity and writing desk with a hairdryer, and power sockets compatible with UK, USA, and European plugs – although USB ports are still absent from this grade of stateroom despite her October 2023 refit. Guests can enjoy the convenience of tea and coffee making facilities, a welcome bottle of sparkling wine, and a complimentary room service menu. For those who desire extra indulgence. Britannia Inside Staterooms do come with a fridge, however no mini bar which once again, is disappointing considering the premium and luxurious image Cunard keenly promote.

To ensure an impeccable stay, a dedicated steward is assigned to each stateroom, maintaining its pristine condition day and night. With bathrobes and slippers provided, guests can unwind in style and comfort. Despite the minor issues with the shower curtain, lack of interactive TV and mini bar, the Britannia Standard Inside Staterooms provide a well-appointed and cosy retreat, allowing passengers to enjoy their voyage in a setting of understated elegance and attentive service.

Britannia Atrium View Inside Staterooms

The Britannia Atrium View Inside Staterooms aboard Queen Mary 2 offer a unique and comfortable retreat with a view of the ship’s magnificent Grand Lobby – which is undoubtedly the heart of the ship. Measuring approximately 159 square feet, these staterooms provide ample space for a restful voyage. While the shower curtain in the bathroom and the absence of a mini bar and interactive TV might be disappointing to some, the overall experience remains pleasant and convenient, thanks to the abundance of storage and thoughtful amenities.

Each stateroom features a Cunarder bed that can be configured as a king-size or two single beds, ensuring a flexible and comfortable sleeping arrangement. The bathroom includes a walk-in shower equipped with Penhaligon’s toiletries, offering a touch of luxury despite the less-than-ideal shower curtain. Guests can enjoy a selection of satellite TV channels for movies, music and news, although the lack of an interactive TV might be a minor inconvenience for those used to more modern entertainment systems with other cruise lines.

The staterooms are designed with a feature vanity and writing desk, complete with a hairdryer, and power sockets compatible with UK, USA, and European plugs, catering to various electronic needs. Additional comforts include bathrobes and slippers, tea and coffee making facilities, and a welcome bottle of sparkling wine.

Dining options are flexible, with a choice of Early, Late, and Open Dining in the Britannia Restaurant, ensuring guests can enjoy meals at their convenience. A dedicated steward is assigned to each stateroom, maintaining its pristine condition and ensuring guests are attentively looked after throughout their stay. With a complimentary room service menu, guests can enjoy in-room dining as well.

One of the standout features of the Britannia Atrium View Inside Staterooms is the window overlooking the Grand Lobby, providing a unique and pleasant view that adds to the overall charm of the accommodation. However, be mindful that these views of the Grand Lobby do compromise privacy, as guests in other Britannia Atrium View Inside Staterooms will be able to see into your stateroom unless the blind is down. 

Britannia Oceanview Staterooms

Britannia Oceanview Staterooms aboard Queen Mary 2 offer a private enclave from which to enjoy the scenic beauty of the sea. Ranging in size from approximately 159 to 194 square feet, these staterooms provide adequate space, especially when considering that the average size of an outside cabin on a cruise ship is about 180 square feet. Positioned to offer sea views, the Britannia Oceanview Staterooms present a picturesque backdrop to the thoughtfully designed features and premium amenities, all meticulously organised by your dedicated steward to ensure you are always attentively looked after.

Each Britannia Oceanview stateroom includes a Cunarder bed that can be configured as either a king-size or two single beds, except for certain staterooms which are fixed with twin beds due to accessibility requirements (4016, 4019, 5019, 5248, 5250, 5267, 5269, 6040, 6047). The lounge area with seating provides a comfortable space to relax, while the window, although quite small, offers charming sea views. However, it’s worth noting that the large bedside lamps can obstruct the window in a twin bed configuration, which might be a minor inconvenience for some guests. The bathroom features a walk-in shower equipped with Penhaligon’s toiletries, although the presence of a shower curtain might not meet the expectations of those accustomed to more premium and luxurious facilities.

Despite the absence of an interactive TV and a mini bar, the staterooms are equipped with a satellite TV offering movie, music and news channels, and power sockets compatible with UK, USA, and European plugs. Guests can enjoy the convenience of a feature vanity and writing desk with a hairdryer, as well as tea and coffee making facilities, bathrobes, and slippers. A welcome bottle of sparkling wine and a complimentary room service menu add to the sense of hospitality and comfort. For extra indulgence, mini bar packages are available to purchase – you just need to enquire at the Purser’s Office whilst onboard.

Dining options are varied and flexible, with a choice of Early, Late, and Open Dining in the Britannia Restaurant, ensuring that meals fit seamlessly into your schedule. Your dedicated steward ensures that the stateroom is kept in impeccable order day and night, enhancing the overall experience of luxury and attentive service. While there are areas that may not meet every traveller’s expectations, such as the small window, the absence of an interactive TV, and the impracticality of the large bedside lamps, the Britannia Oceanview Staterooms still offer a comfortable and well-appointed retreat, perfect for enjoying the serene views and elegant ambience of the Queen Mary 2.

Britannia Balcony Staterooms

Britannia Balcony Staterooms aboard Queen Mary 2 offer a spacious and luxurious retreat for guests which appreciate a sea view At approximately 248 square feet, these staterooms are generously sized, especially when compared to the average balcony cabin on a cruise ship, which is typically around 197 square feet. The Britannia Balcony Staterooms come in several variations, including standard, sheltered, and obstructed view options, providing a range of choices to suit different preferences.

One of the standout features of these staterooms is the private balcony, which is notably more spacious than those found on many modern cruise ships. This outdoor space, furnished with seating, allows guests to enjoy uninterrupted sea views and a breath of fresh ocean air. Inside, the staterooms feature a comfortable lounge area with seating, a Cunarder bed that can be configured as either a king-size or two single beds, and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. While the shower curtain might be seen as a drawback for those expecting more premium fittings, the overall comfort and luxury of the amenities compensate for this minor inconvenience.

The staterooms are equipped with a satellite TV offering movie, music and news channels, though some guests may miss the presence of an interactive TV. Additionally, while there is no complimentary mini bar, mini-bar packages are available for purchase from the Purser’s Office. The feature vanity and writing desk with a hairdryer, along with UK, USA, and European power sockets, add to the convenience and functionality of the space. Guests are treated to Penhaligon’s toiletries, bathrobes, and slippers, enhancing the sense of luxury.

Dining options are varied and flexible, with choices of Early, Late, and Open Dining in the Britannia Restaurant. A welcome bottle of sparkling wine and tea and coffee making facilities ensure guests feel warmly welcomed. The complimentary room service menu adds an extra layer of convenience, allowing guests to dine in the privacy of their stateroom.

A dedicated steward maintains the staterooms in impeccable order, providing attentive service day and night. Despite a few areas of disappointment, such as the shower curtain, lack of interactive TV, and absence of a complimentary mini bar, the Britannia Balcony Staterooms offer a superbly comfortable and well-appointed environment. With their generous size, luxurious amenities, and expansive balconies, these staterooms provide an ideal setting for a memorable voyage aboard Queen Mary 2.

Britannia Club Balcony Staterooms

Britannia Club Balcony Staterooms aboard Queen Mary 2 offer an elevated level of comfort and exclusivity, making them a prime choice for discerning travellers. While the staterooms themselves are identical to the Britannia Balcony Staterooms, the added perks could make some difference to your time onboard. Guests in these staterooms benefit from superior locations on the ship, where they experience less noise and motion, ensuring a more serene and restful journey.

At approximately 248 square feet, Britannia Club Balcony Staterooms provide ample space, with a private balcony that is notably more generous than those on many modern cruise ships. The balcony, furnished with seating and a small table, allows guests to enjoy stunning sea views and fresh ocean breezes in complete privacy. Inside, the staterooms feature a lounge area with comfortable seating, a Cunarder bed configurable to either a king-size or two single beds, and a bathroom equipped with a walk-in shower. Despite the minor inconvenience of a shower curtain, the overall comfort and luxury of the amenities are commendable.

Each stateroom includes satellite TV with basic movie, music and news channels, although some guests might miss having an interactive TV as you get on other Carnival brands like P&O, Princess and Holland America. The feature vanity and writing desk with a hairdryer, along with UK, USA, and European power sockets, add convenience – although some USB-A ports would have been a nice addition following Queen Mary 2’s 2023 refit.

Luxurious Penhaligon’s toiletries, bathrobes, and slippers enhance the experience. Tea and coffee making facilities, a welcome bottle of sparkling wine, and a complimentary room service menu further contribute to a welcoming and comfortable stay. Although there is no complimentary mini bar, mini-bar packages are available for purchase from the Purser’s Office.

The standout advantage of Britannia Club Balcony Staterooms lies in a more-exclusive dining experience. Guests dine in the more intimate Britannia Club section of the Britannia Restaurant, enjoying a higher level of personal service and a more refined atmosphere – however it doesn’t feel quite as exclusive and intimate as the entirely separate Britannia Club Restaurants found on other Cunard sisters, including Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Anne. 

Opting for a Britannia Club Balcony Stateroom typically adds around £300-£500 per person to the cost of a 7-night cruise, compared to the standard Britannia Balcony Staterooms. This additional investment provides guests with a quieter and more comfortable location on the ship, enhanced dining experiences, and a generally more exclusive atmosphere. For those seeking an elevated experience aboard Queen Mary 2, Britannia Club Balcony Staterooms may be worth some consideration.

Princess Grill Suites

Princess Suites aboard Queen Mary 2 offer an exceptional level of luxury and space, providing an elevated cruising experience for discerning cruisers. Measuring approximately 381 square feet, these suites are significantly larger than the industry average for mini or junior suites, which typically range between 250 to 300 square feet. This generous size allows for a more comfortable and spacious environment, ideal for extended voyages.

One of the standout features of the Princess Suites is the private balcony, which offers magnificent sea views and is furnished with comfortable seating. Guests can enjoy these views from both inside and outside the suite, adding to the sense of serenity and luxury. The spacious lounge area, complete with ample seating, is perfect for relaxation, while the bedroom area boasts a Cunarder bed that can be configured as either a king-size or two single beds. The inclusion of a pillow concierge menu allows guests to select from a variety of pillow types, ensuring a restful night’s sleep.

The bathroom is well-appointed with both a bath and a shower, along with Penhaligon’s toiletries and luxury bathrobes and slippers, adding to the opulence of the suite. The suite is equipped with satellite TVs in both the lounge and bedroom areas, providing movie, music and news channels for entertainment, though some may miss the presence of an interactive TV. Despite the lack of an included drink package or complimentary WiFi, which are often provided with suites on other cruise lines like MSC Yacht Club, the Princess Grill Suites on Queen Mary 2 still offer a host of luxurious amenities.

Each suite features a mini-bar with speciality tea and coffee making facilities, and complimentary spring water is replenished throughout the voyage daily. Guests are also treated to daily fresh fruit and a welcome bottle of sparkling wine. Dining is a particularly exclusive experience, with access to the Princess Grill restaurant where guests can dine at their reserved table at any time. For added convenience, guests can also dine in-suite from the exquisite Princess Grill menu.

The Princess Suites come with several exclusive privileges, including access to the Grills Lounge and the outside Grills Terrace, providing a private retreat for relaxation and socialising. The concierge service is available for on-board reservations and shore experiences, ensuring guests’ needs are meticulously attended to. A dedicated steward maintains the suite in immaculate order day and night, and guests benefit from priority embarkation and disembarkation, enhancing the overall luxury experience.

In conclusion, while the absence of an interactive TV and included drink package or WiFi may be minor disappointments, the Princess Suites aboard Queen Mary 2 offer a lavish and spacious retreat with numerous exclusive benefits.

Each Queens Grill Suite is a private residence at sea, brought to life with bold, striking colours and thoughtful designs. The spacious lounge area is perfect for relaxation, while the bedroom area features a Cunarder bed configurable to either a king-size or two single beds, ensuring a restful sleep. The pillow concierge menu allows guests to choose from a variety of pillow types for added comfort. The bathroom is well-appointed with both a bath and shower, a separate dressing area, and luxury Penhaligon’s toiletries. The suite also includes a feature vanity and writing desk with a hairdryer, and UK, USA, and European power sockets for convenience. Although, there are no additional USB ports as you might have expected following Queen Mary 2’s extensive refit in October 2023.

The expansive private balcony, furnished with seating, offers stunning sea views and a serene retreat for guests to enjoy the ocean breeze. The suite is equipped with satellite TVs in both the bedroom and lounge areas, although the lack of an interactive TV might be a minor inconvenience for some.

With spacious accommodations, exclusive dining options, and exceptional service, these suites provide a truly extraordinary cruise experience.

At approximately 758 square feet, these penthouses are significantly larger than those on other Cunard ships like Queen Anne, which range from 532 to 647 square feet. Despite the impressive size and numerous amenities, there are a few areas of disappointment. Notably, there is no interactive TV functionality with movies on demand, and the absence of inclusive drink and WiFi packages is surprising given the high cruise fare for these suites.

Despite the grandeur, there are a few areas of disappointment.

Tips for Choosing the Best Stateroom or Suite

Selecting the ideal stateroom or suite aboard Queen Mary 2, Cunard’s magnificent ocean liner, is crucial for enhancing your experience at sea. Here are several tips to guide you in choosing the perfect accommodation that aligns with your preferences and budget:

Establish Your Budget

Start by determining your budget. Queen Mary 2 offers a range from the more modestly priced Britannia Inside Staterooms to the opulent Queens Grill Duplex Suites. Setting your budget early helps to focus your selection on options that are financially comfortable.

Consider the Location

The location of your stateroom on the ship can significantly impact your experience. If you are sensitive to motion, opt for a midship stateroom on a lower deck, as these areas typically experience less movement. If convenience is a priority, consider a stateroom close to the lifts or central areas of the ship to minimise walking. For a quieter environment, seek out staterooms away from busy areas like lounges, lifts, and the Promenade Deck.

View Preferences

Decide how important a view is to you. If the idea of greeting the sea each morning excites you, a Britannia Balcony Stateroom or Britannia Oceanview Stateroom might be ideal. However, if you prefer to spend more on onboard experiences or excursions, a Britannia Inside Stateroom provides a cost-effective choice without the premium of a sea view.

Space Requirements

Space is an important consideration, especially for longer voyages or when travelling with companions. If you need extra room or are journeying with a group, upgrading to a Princess or Queens Grill Suite might be beneficial. Suites like the Princess Grill Suite not only provide more living space but also come with additional perks such as access to exclusive restaurants, priority services, exclusive access to a suite-only sundeck and enhanced personal care.

Balcony Size

For many, the balcony is a private haven for enjoying sea views and fresh air. If enjoying your balcony is a priority, assess the size and features of the balconies available in different staterooms or suites. The larger balconies in the Princess and Queens Grill Suites offer substantial space for private dining and relaxation.

Amenities and Perks

Different accommodations come with varied amenities and perks. If exclusive services are important to you, the suites on Queen Mary 2 offer luxurious benefits, including superior dining options, priority boarding, and larger bathrooms. Evaluate these advantages against the cost to determine if the benefits justify the additional expense.

Review Deck Plans

Before finalising your decision, review the ship’s deck plans on the Cunard website to understand the location of your potential stateroom or suite in relation to the ship’s amenities. This helps visualise your choice and its convenience.

Read Reviews and Consult Experts

Explore reviews from past passengers who have stayed in the type of accommodation you are considering. Their insights can be invaluable. Additionally, consulting with a travel agent who specialises in cruises can provide personalised advice and potentially secure a better deal or upgrade.

By taking these factors into account, you can choose the stateroom or suite on Queen Mary 2 that best suits your needs, ensuring a luxurious and memorable experience aboard Cunard’s flagship.

Conclusion

The staterooms and suites aboard Queen Mary 2 epitomise the pinnacle of luxury and comfort at sea, catering to a wide range of preferences and budgets. Whether you opt for the well-appointed Britannia Inside Staterooms or the expansive and opulent Queens Grill Duplex Suites, each accommodation is meticulously designed to provide a serene and elegant retreat.
