Queen Mary 2's Kings Court dining venue to undergo transformation

A rendering of the Kings Court seating area
Kings Court on Queen Mary 2 is set to be transformed into a more open central buffet area and reconfigured seating arrangements.

The work will be carrried out during the ship's refit scheduled between May 27 and June 1 next year.

Extensive development work involving Cunard guests and Queen Mary 2's galley teams has been undertaken over the last eighteen months in the redesign of this dining venue.

Enhancements are planned to both the service and culinary offer in Kings Court with the newly refreshed venue featuring new menus, the convenience of pre-set tables and waiter-served drinks.

Cunard chefs will take centre stage in the reimagined Kings Court as they guide guests through cooking demonstrations that highlight the remastered menus. Kings Court will offer informal dining options throughout the day; from hot and cold buffet options to light snacks, afternoon treats and alternative evening dining cuisines such as Indian, Italian, Pan Asian and Tex Mex.

The popular Chef’s Galley area, serving Italian pastas and pizzas for lunch, will also offer a Chef’s Table tasting menu on select evenings. Hosted by the Executive Chef, the Chef’s Table will offer guests the opportunity to hear insights and recipe tips while enjoying a tasting menu expertly paired with fine wines.

Art Deco inspired chandeliers, artworks, areas of warm timber flooring and the use of mirrors to accentuate the ocean view, will be featured in the interior design.
