Queen Mary 2 offers so much to do and see that it would take a week to describe everything, so I'll give you the Reader's Digest version rather than the uncut Ulysses version. Let your cares float away with the next tide under the skilled hands of a masseuse in Canyon Ranch SpaClub. For those with something a little more active in mind, Queen Mary 2 also has a state-of-the-art gym, a virtual reality golf course, and a basketball court. Of course, there are many lounges on the Cunard Queen Mary 2 cruise ship where you can toast your friends, such as Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar or Sir Samuel's. Listen to melodious jazz riffs in the Commodore Club. Play a hand of blackjack or spin the roulette wheel in the Empire Casino. G32 plays the latest dance numbers late into the night, but if you'd rather sit than sway, watch the musical revue in the Royal Court Theatre. If all that music got you in the mood for singing, come to the Golden Lion for its karaoke and cold draughts.
As part of Cunard's Enrichment programs, you could take a visit to the planetarium onboard and get a lesson on the constellations. In fact, there are dozens of activities and interesting options you have, like going to a wine tasting seminar, listening to a lecture from an expert speak about ancient history, or taking a course on oceanography.
