Queen Mary 2 – Food

If there’s one thing that cruise ships know how to do well, it’s food. The Queen Mary 2 is no exception, with a whole array of restaurants, buffets and afternoon tea available to guests. With silver service in the restaurants, you can’t fail to feel incredibly lucky to be eating such delicious foods.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, well, all meals are pretty important to me! I often lean towards buffet breakfasts on board cruise ships, as they’re easier, are open longer and mean whatever odd combination I fancy is available. However, on board the Queen Mary the waiting staff are more than happy to cater to any breakfast based desires. My personal favourite whilst on board this Cunard ship was the blueberry pancakes with crispy streaky bacon and maple syrup. I love the combination of sweet and salt, and the pancakes were so light and fluffy they didn’t leave me feeling too full for the rest of the morning!

For special occasions and gala nights the Queen Mary staff pull out all the stops and some incredible food is available. I was thrilled to see lobster tail on the menu as I had never tried this luxury food. It did not disappoint, and remains one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten.

The gala nights feature, as many cruises do, the famous flaming Baked Alaska. The kitchen and waiting staff parade through the restaurant and you start to get an idea of how many people are involved in the inner workings of a cruise ship!

Please excuse my poor quality photos – the ambient lighting of the restaurant made is slightly harder to subtly take good pictures!
