Queen's Room

Afternoon tea on board Cunard’s ships is a tradition that has been carried out for years, and the Queens Room is where it all happens. Quell those mid-afternoon hunger pangs with fresh cucumber sandwiches, deliciously light scones and a perfectly brewed cup of tea.

If you are looking for some time off from the formalities of the Princess and Queens Grills then the Kings Court is the perfect setting for your breakfast or lunch. During these times the food is served buffet style where you can help yourself to as much as you wish. In the evening though, the room is transformed into one of four restaurants which rotate during your time on board. Therefore, dining in the King’s Court in the evening could mean you get to enjoy Asian cuisine, a Great British carvery, Italian delights or a selection of surprise dishes created by the chefs.
