In 2024, Queen Anne is due to join the Cunard fleet and will be the line’s 249th ship! She will sail alongside Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth.
For over 180 years Cunard has set the bar and then raised it, continually refining the definitive experience of ocean travel. From this spirit comes the finest ship of its era. A ship inspired by the line’s past and built for the future.
She’ll offer everything that Cunarders have come to know and love about the line, as well as a few extras, including an impressive array of alternative dining options and that’s what we’re looking at in our blog today. So, let’s get down to business!
Alternative Dining Aboard Queen Anne
For an extra special evening, instead of dining at your main restaurant consider booking a table at one of the alternative options on board. From Mediterranean flavours and tastes of Pan-Asian, to a flagship steakhouse and grill, Queen Anne offers an exciting array of cuisines to cater to the tastebuds of all guests.
Inspired by fresh Mediterranean flavours, with a sprinkling of African and Arabic influences, Tramonto offers simple and authentic dishes that pay homage to Europe’s sunshine region.
Aji Wa, meaning ‘harmony of flavours,’ combines the signature tastes of Japan with the artistry of skilled chefs for a truly authentic dining experience. Menus evolve across the year to reflect the seasonality of ingredients and Queen Anne’s location. Where you choose to sit (and the time of day you visit) will also influence how your experience unfolds.
Savour fluffy bao buns, pan-fried gyozas, and feather-light tempura from the all-day menu. Fill up on freshly pressed sushi rolls and slithers of sashimi at the sit-up sushi bar. Or indulge in delicately seared Wagyu beef from the yakitori grill. You’ll also find a Japanese twist on Afternoon Tea, while in the evening, you can let the expert chefs surprise you with a tasting menu.
Paying homage to Cunard’s founder, Sir Samuel’s is a culinary coupling of land and ocean, where nothing comes as standard.
The most succulent steaks; subtly smoked and served with your choice of knife. Fruit de mer platters infused with all the flavours of the sea. Irresistible Dover sole delicately deboned at your table.
Aranya (meaning forest or wilderness in Sanskrit) will take you on a sensory tour of the Indian subcontinent with playful interpretations of classic Indian cuisine. Be it the sprawling bazaars of Delhi, the lush green pastures of Kerala, or perhaps the golden sands of Goa. At Aranya, every evening is a new adventure and you’re at the helm. This dining option is filled with authentic Indian flavours with a subtle twist.
The Golden Lion
A Cunard classic, The Golden Lion offers Sunday roasts with lashings of gravy. ‘Proper’ pints served straight from the tap. Bloody Marys as red as the ship’s funnels.
The menu – designed by two Michelin starred chef Michel Roux – offers a fresh take on pub classics, while the drinks selection boasts an ever-changing line-up of ales (including three Cunard exclusives) and wines from around the world.
