Cunard’s QE2 is now on its first world cruise since a 12m refit at the end of last year. Many of the restaurants and bars on board have undergone secondary refurbishment, including the Yacht Club (pictured), while major work has been carried out in the Mauretania Restaurant and the Princess Grill.

In common with all UK flagged ships, the QE2 undergoes a dry-dock inspection every two years when refurbishments are carried out.
