Onboard Cunard you have many choices when it comes to dining.
Single Seating dining is available, which means guests can choose to dine anytime between 7 and 9pm. On QM2 and QE2, the Britannia and Mauretania restaurants respectively offer a choice of an early or a late sitting for dinner. All other restaurants are single seating dining.
On both QM2 and QE2, your accommodation is paired with a specific restaurant for your formal dining arrangements.
All ships offer alternative dining options: Kings Court & Todd English Restaurant on QM2 and the Lido on QE2.
One of the great thrills of a Cunard cruise is the sheer glamour of the evenings. Generally, evening dress may be either formal or informal when your ship is at sea, and informal or casual when your ship is in port. Evening attire, effective from 6pm, will be specified in your ship's Daily Programme, delivered to your stateroom each day. Dress codes are defined as follows:
FORMAL: Tuxedo (or formal dark suit) for men. Evening gown or other formal attire for women.
INFORMAL: Jacket and tie for men. Cocktail dress, dressy trouser suit or similar for women.
CASUAL: For men, slacks and a sweater or shirt. For women, skirt or slacks with a sweater or blouse. A range of formal wear is available to hire on board ship.
Gratuities are not included in the cruise fares. A suggested per person daily amount will be charged to your shipboard account and distributed to your cabin steward, dining room waiter and other personnel. For bar and salon services, a 15% gratuity is automatically added to all charges for your convenience.
