New Carinthia Lounge Coming to Queen Mary 2

Cunard Line has revealed details of the new Carinthia Lounge which will be added during Queen Mary 2’s dry dock.

The new lounge will be added when the Queen Mary 2 gets a multi million dollar refurbishment from 27 May to 21 June 2016. Carinthia Lounge will be one of many new upgrades onboard the British based ocean liner. The lounge will be added where the ships current Winter Garden is located.

Richard Meadows, president, Cunard, North America said:

“The Carinthia embodied the spirit of travel in the 1920s, which saw the rise in popularity in world voyages and winter cruises, and it is our honor to bestow this name onto our new lounge set to launch following refit. We believe this space will truly elevate the Queen Mary 2 experience, adding new innovative culinary options, as well as another level of refined relaxation and entertainment for our guests.”

The Carinthia Lounge will transition seamlessly throughout the day, from a serene and cheery lounge serving light breakfast and lunch dishes, to an elegant evening destination. It will become the perfect spot to sit and relax, the place to catch up with friends or the venue to enjoy a good book.
