On Tuesday this week, Queen Mary 2 welcomed Carnival UK colleagues on board for her long awaited test voyage. As well as testing all operational elements and delivering the impeccable White Star Service that Cunard is famous for, the ship was put through her paces testing the COVID-19 protocols we have in place. 

To do this and facilitate our return to service, we have been working with Bureau Veritas to audit and verify health and wellbeing standards on board our ships. Having previously given Britannia, Iona, Queen Elizabeth and Ventura the green light to sail again, Bureau Veritas were on board Queen Mary 2 to assess and verify all procedures and protocols to identify and manage COVID-19 related risks.

Thanks to the hard work of all our colleagues on board and many more ashore, we’re thrilled to announce that Queen Mary 2 is officially approved to return to service having passed her audit! In just three more days she’ll be setting sail and once again creating unforgettable holiday happiness for our guests. 

Captain Andrew Hall, Master of Queen Mary 2, said: 

On behalf of the entire ship’s company, I am delighted to receive this certificate from Bureau Veritas. This external verification of our health and well-being protocols from Bureau Veritas, who are a world leader in testing, inspection and certification, is extremely welcome and recognises the hard work and attention to detail by so many of our colleagues – onboard and ashore. Undoubtedly, this award will give our guests assurance that they can sail with confidence onboard Queen Mary 2.”
