An airy and elegant new space to enjoy refreshments, light bites, greet the day and dance the night away
SOUTHAMPTON, England, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --Today Cunard announced its plans to transform Queen Mary 2's Winter Garden into an elegant, airy and versatile new venue: the Carinthia Lounge. Named after Cunard's beloved Carinthia ships, the new Carinthia Lounge will take shape during Queen Mary 2's multimillion dollar refit from 27 May to 21 June 2016.
Designed to be one of the most stylish and talked-about destinations on Queen Mary 2, the Carinthia Lounge will transition seamlessly throughout the day, from a serene and cheery lounge serving light breakfast and lunch dishes, to an elegant evening destination. It will become the perfect spot to sit and relax, the place to catch up with friends or the venue to enjoy a good book.
The Carinthia Lounge will feature a dedicated patisserie and an afternoon tea service, with the option of a special Veuve Cliquot Champagne Afternoon Tea experience. When the sun sets, the atmosphere will evolve into an inviting evening spot with premium wine, small plates and relaxed entertainment.
"The Carinthia embodied the spirit of travel in the 1920s, which saw the rise in popularity in world voyages and winter cruises, and it is our honor to bestow this name onto our new lounge set to launch following refit," says Richard Meadows, president, Cunard, North America. "We believe this space will truly elevate the Queen Mary 2 experience, adding new innovative culinary options, as well as another level of refined relaxation and entertainment for our guests."
The Carinthia Lounge will feature a fresh colour palette of powder blue, cream and gold, and versatile seating layouts including dining chairs and tables near the new patisserie and chic curved lounge seating under decorative lights. The spacious venue will also feature a wine wall, vertical metal Art Deco-inspired screens, and a dark walnut timber dance floor.
