Cunard Luxury Suites

Suites are categorized into Princess Grill, Queens Grill, Queens Grill Penthouses Located on Decks 9 and 10, the six 758-square-foot Penthouse suites ,four Royal Suites include two cabin sizes: 1,194-square foot Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth (with balconies) and 796-square foot Queen Anne and Queen Victoria (without balconies).There are two types of Queens Grill Duplexes onboard -- Duplex Apartments known as Windsor, Buckingham and Holyrood, and Grand Duplex Apartments known as Balmoral and Sandringham. The only difference is the size, which ranges from 1,471 to 2,249 square feet. . The bigger they get, the more luxurious they feel.

Princess Grill: Located on Deck 10, the 381-square-foot Princess Suites are larger and more luxurious than the ship's Balcony cabins. With a stylish ash gray and cream color scheme on the walls, the updated cabins feel like stylish hotel suites. They contain more high-end fixtures, such as the plush nightstand lamps and gray wall padding behind the bed. There's extra desk space with shelf storage above and a short-back armchair, as well as a sofa in the sitting area. The balconies are each equipped with rattan-style furniture, including two padded armchairs and a coffee table-size table; decking is teak.

Princess Grill cabins also contain separate glass cabinets and walk-in wardrobes with plenty of storage space. There's a bath and shower with a clingy shower curtain in each bathroom.

Added features include a concierge service, sparkling wine and chocolates in the cabin upon arrival, daily fresh fruit, personalized stationery and an upgraded soft velour robe and slippers. There's also an atlas provided in the cabin -- useful for tracking the ship's progress the old-fashioned way.

Queens Grill: Located on Decks 9, 10 and 11, the 506-square-foot Queens Grill suites each feature a spacious living area, dressing room with walk-in wardrobe and bathroom with separate shower and whirlpool bath. Extra amenities include 24-hour butler service, concierge service, Champagne and chocolates upon embarkation, complimentary in-cabin drinks (including two bottles of wine or spirits of your choice and soft drinks), pre-dinner canapes, daily fresh fruit and a turn-down "surprise" on formal nights. Regular nightly turn-down service with chocolates is also provided, and there's an atlas and a selection of books in the cabin's library.

The luxury factor is upped once again with splashes of red and other touches, such as the marble-top oval coffee table with stylish gold trim and legs, and other high-end furnishings lending a designer showroom feel.

Queens Grill passengers also receive priority embarkation, disembarkation and tender service. All Queens Grill passengers receive allocated dining in the Queens Grill.

Cunard Luxury Grills Dining & Lounge (qm2)
Grill suites are all on decks 9 & 10. There is a concierge lounge on deck 9 where you can book tours and excursions, make speciality dining reservations, or make any other arrangements you so desire while on board. It also saves you a trip to the purser’s office on deck 3. You can choose to sit in there and read a book, watch television, enjoy a tea/coffee and a snack, and meet fellow Grill guests.

One other thing which truly sets Grill suite guests apart, is the dining experience. Depending on your suite category, you are allocated either the Queens or the Princess Grill restaurant – a much more intimate affair, where you have an allocated table and waiting staff for your voyage and you can choose your table size – there are even plenty tables just for 2. You can dine here for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, with set hours for each meal, but with the option to dine at any time of your choosing during the dining hours – so no fixed dining times, giving you much more freedom to explore everything the ship has to offer, at your own pace. Your table is set with the finest linens, silverware and Wedgwood china, and your every wish is catered for, with a sommelier on hand to pair wines with your dinner choices.

As well as the daily changing menu, you have the regular a la carte to choose from, but Grill guests also have the option to pre-order one of the speciality meals for 2 – a chateaubriand, whole duck or rack of lamb maybe? Incredible top quality produce, lovingly prepared and served as you wish.

Nothing is too much trouble for the fabulous staff and chefs on board.

There is the Grill lounge, opposite the Queens Grill restaurant – a great place to meet for an aperitif or after dinner liqueurs. You can even enjoy private performances by the on board musicians, or indulge in something else Cunard is famous for, traditional afternoon tea, served by white-gloved waiters (I recommend you skip lunch for this!).
