Queen Mary 2 Transatlantic Food Blog

Queen-Mary-2

One of the biggest aspects of cruising, aside from the destinations, is the food that is served onboard. If a cruise line gets the food wrong, it can lead to a lot of unhappy passengers. One thing that Cunard have absolutely nailed, however, is the food. The options available on Queen Mary 2 during both of my transatlantic crossings were absolutely superb, even the room service menu offered a whole host of culinary delights. I looked forward to dinner in the Britannia Restaurant every evening and not once was I served a dish that I didn’t like. I even got to try a few new protein options – Orange Roughy and Guinea Fowl – and they were delicious, I especially liked the Orange Roughy although I am glad that I had no idea what it looked like as a whole fish before I ate it. It’s not the most attractive creature on the planet.

My Queen Mary 2 food blog offers a glimpse at just some of the dishes that are available in the Britannia Restaurant, Golden Lion Pub, on the room service menu and in the Kings Court Buffet. No drooling, please!

I hope you enjoyed that little culinary journey. It took me a few days to put together because it kept making me feel so hungry! I ended up having my lunch as brunch one day – I have no self control at all. I really was impressed with the food on Cunard, only 2 other cruise lines have left me REALLY looking forward to dinner every evening: Saga and Fred. Olsen. Cunard has given me a hat-trick.

  1. Hi Danielle,

    Wow.. Everything looks delicious and my mouth is watering to see such sweet food. It is served very well and each one is new for me and I just want to taste all variety food.

    Yeah, when someone ask for a food, I couldn’t hold myself to say yes. I’m a foodie person and love to eat trendy and taste food. I highly appreciate your queen Mary 2 food blog for offering such melodious dishes. I agree with you on the biggest aspects of cruising is the food that is served onboard aside from the destination. Serving a good food may help to impress the passenger to visit again and again. We shouldn’t make unhappy passenger by mistake.

    Thanks for taking interest to share it with us.
    With regards.
    – Ravi.
