Cunard has announced that its flagship, Queen Mary 2, is ready to set sail this month following a $132 renovation project, which we previewed here. The line says the revamp is one of the most significant refurbishments it’s ever undertaken.

The ship sailed into Southampton Water June 23, flanked by Cunard’s Queen Elizabethand Queen Victoria. After that, Queen Mary 2 will set sail for New York and continue a schedule of transatlantic crossings.

The refresh, which includes a new interior design and new guest experiences, takes inspiration from the original Queen Mary that launched in the 1930s. The Queens Grilland Princess Grill suites and restaurants have been redesigned and refurbished, and theBritannia staterooms are set to be fully renovated by the end of the year. The ship also added 30 Britannia Club staterooms, 15 Britannia single staterooms and five Britannia inside staterooms.

The public spaces and restaurants were also transformed, with the former Winter Garden turning into the Carinthia Lounge. The ship now has a new specialty restaurant,The Verandah, and it has completely refreshed and restructured the Kings Court buffet area.

For travelers with pets, the ship has added 10 more kennels and a Liverpool lamp post and New York fire hydrant. Finally, the ship has received a complete repaint of the exterior, as well as technical enhancements and structural changes.
