At 2 meters long, Queen Mary 345 is one of the longest passenger ships in the world. It has more than 1.300 cabins and suites. Two thirds of the cabins and suites have balconies or terraces. This is not an outstanding value; younger cruise ships have significantly better rates. However, as mentioned, the ship was built for liner service on the Atlantic, and due to the often unfavorable weather conditions, different conditions apply there than for cruises in sunny regions. Regular use as a transatlantic liner explains the relatively high number of inside and outside cabins. The size of the cabins varies between 15 (Inside cabin) and 145 (Queen Grill Suites) square meters.
The cabins have everything that makes a sea voyage pleasant and relaxing. The beds are good. Sufficient closet space is available so that the company's wardrobe can easily be accommodated. A fridge, a modern TV, a safe and a hairdryer are part of the basic equipment. The bathrooms are of adequate size and the shower area is spacious.
Note: The cabin sockets require an adapter. The power supply corresponds to the British 3-pin standard.
Some special features:
Several inside cabins on decks 5 and 6 offer a view of the pompous Grand Lobby.
Queen Mary 2 - Inside staterooms overlooking the Grand Lobby
Queen Mary 2 - Loggia Cabin 4187
The "loggia balcony cabins" on decks 4, 5 and 6 are protected from water by the ship's solid steel wall due to their lower location. Large windows are cut into the steel outer wall. This security measure limits visibility. The balcony cabins on the 8th deck only offer a very limited view due to the lifeboats attached in front of them.
