On Board Queen Mary 2: Round-the-World Cruise Visits Singapore

On Board Queen Mary 2: Round-the-World Cruise Visits Singapore

This cruise has the world's only planetarium at sea and transatlantic kennel service!

Gaze at gorgeous virtual galaxies and immerse in a good read at a library filled with 10,000 books – these are just some of the activities that you can do on board Cunard’s flagship, Queen Mary 2. 

This huge, luxurious 134-day round-the-world cruise with a guest capacity of 2,700 emphasizes on timeless British elegance and style for affluent travellers and millennials. She ended her Southeast Asia round-trip voyage in Singapore on 5 April 2018 and was docked for 12 hours from 7am to 7pm. Both her 7-day voyage to Hong Kong via Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City, and the 5-day voyage from Hong Kong to Singapore were sold out in no time!

We were very lucky to go on board for an exclusive ship tour! Here are seven interesting things you can do on Queen Mary 2, which proves her booming popularity in Southeast Asia.

1. Visit the Milky Way and distant galaxies at Planetarium

You do not need to go aboard a spaceship to marvel at swirling beautiful galaxies because you can do so at Illuminations, the world’s only planetarium at sea on Queen Mary 2! Multiple images of planets, galaxies and the Milky Way are screened on the dome hung on the ceiling, surrounding you in a virtual space. With the dome retracted, it doubles as a luxury 3D cinema and a classical music venue.

2. Indulge in the finest Godiva chocolates at the Godiva Chocolatier Café

First of its kind at sea, the Godiva Chocolatier Café has a wide assortment of exquisite chocolates, patisseries, chocolate drinks and ice creams – sweet tooths, you will definitely be spoilt for choice!

3. Get lost in piles of books at the largest library at sea

Borrowing books on a cruise has now become a reality. Queen Mary 2 has a library stocked with 10,000 books ranging from all-time-favourite classics like The Fault in Our Stars and even German and Japanese books!

4. Dance and sway to the beat at the largest ballroom at sea

Groove along with other guests at the elegant balls organised on the cruise, complete with a live orchestra and sometimes, even a dance display by onboard dance instructors! Novice dancers can also pick up some simple moves from the instructors.

5. Sip a glass or two at the world’s finest wine cellar at sea

The wine cellar aboard is every wine aficionados’ dream – there is a wide collection of over 486 exceptional wines and Ports that date back to the 1840s.

6. Be spoilt for choice with a wide array of gourmet spread

By wide, we meant no fewer than 10 dining options aboard Queen Mary 2!

Make a dash to the spacious, stylish King’s Court for a delectable international buffet! From rows of fresh Japanese sashimi and the quintessential German cheese platter to unique desserts such as Chocolate Zucchini Cake, the food here has been tried and tested – amazing!

You can also enjoy an intimate dining experience with your loved ones at the Grills restaurants, the Britannia restaurant, and the Verandah French restaurant. Professional servers and sommeliers will personally talk through the comprehensive food and wine menu with every guest.

7. Bring your pets on board with you 

Queen Mary 2 is the only certified liner with kennels at sea, which are operational only during transatlantic voyages. Rest assured, you can bring your furry companion aboard and trust the dedicated Kennel Master to pamper it with warmth and care.
