There is no shortage of different dining venues available on a Cunard ship and they all offer a wonderful range of tempting dishes. All of the ships feature the Britannia Restaurant where fixed seat dining is held each evening, as well as the Princess Grill and Queens Grill restaurants which are available exclusively for passengers staying in one of these suites. There are also lots of other restaurants available including cafes, self-service buffets and pool-side grills, and 24-hour room service.

The clubs are run by Cunard's qualified team of nannies and youth workers and are open every day from 9am until midnight.

The Grills Experience

Cunard's Grills experience started over 70 years ago when passengers were able to pay an extra fee for dining in the luxurious Verandah Grill on the original Queen Mary. Since then it has expanded and now includes Princess and Queens Grill suites, lounges and restaurants across the fleet. The Grills Suites are well known for being some of the most extravagant at sea, creating a luxurious but homely feel for all who stay in one. They range in size, with the largest being the Grand Duplexes on Queen Mary 2 which cover around 2,249 square feet across two floors - and that includes an expansive balcony!

All of the suites include special touches such as concierge service, fresh flowers, priority embarkation and in-suite dining, whilst those in Queens Grill suites are treated to additional extras such as pre-dinner canapes, priority disembarkation and personal butler service. Dining in the Grills restaurants is an unforgettable experience that is exclusively for those staying in one of the suites and allows you the chance to dine at a time convenient for you.
