Queen Mary 2 Wins U.S. Travel Weekly’s 2013 Magellan Gold Award for Luxury Ship Suite Design

October 5, 2013 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Cunard Line flagship Queen Mary 2 has won the top honour of U.S. Travel Weekly’s 2013 Magellan Gold Award in Luxury Ship Suite Design for its Queens Grill Duplex Suites.

The award marks Queen Mary 2’s third Magellan Gold Award and fifth overall Magellan recognition since 2009, and comes just as Cunard prepares to celebrate the ocean liner’s milestone 10th year in service in 2014.

At more than 2,200-square-feet, the Duplex Suites aboard Queen Mary 2 are a blend of 1930s Art Deco glamour and modern luxury, providing guests with lavish accommodations that include butler service, pure tranquility and endless ocean views atop expansive private balconies.  Inspired by the iconic Eltham Palace in England, the suites feature ceilings that mirror the palace’s recessed circular dome entry hall, geometric shapes and patterns, and light, creamy hues accented by ebony.

Each Duplex Suite’s vast living quarters also boast an opulent master bedroom, walk-in closets, two marble bathrooms with whirlpool tub and shower, a guest bathroom with shower, private exercise equipment and in-suite bars.

Queen Mary 2 will celebrate her 10th anniversary with two commemorative Transatlantic Crossings on 9 May 2014 (westbound) and 16 May 2014(eastbound).  Since entering service, she has cemented her place in maritime history as the most famous passenger ship afloat today.  She is the largest, longest, tallest, widest and most expensive liner ever built.  In addition, she is the only ocean liner in service today and is the fastest passenger ship in the world.

The Travel Weekly Magellan Awards honors the best in travel.  A complete list of Magellan Award winners can be found at Queen Mary 2’s past Magellan Awards include two honors for overall luxury and two for suite design.
