(4:20 p.m. EST) -- Following a successful trial on Queen Mary 2, Cunard Line's extra-fee steakhouse dining option, Steakhouse at the Verandah, has rolled out fleetwide.
QM2 has housed the venue in The Verandah since summer 2018, and sister ships Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria have now followed suit.
"After the success of the new steakhouse menu onboard Queen Mary 2 last summer, our team has decided to take the concept across the fleet," said Josh Leibowitz, Senior Vice President, Cunard North America, in a statement.
The menu, which also lists vegetarian and gluten-free options, focuses on high-end meat selections that include New York strip steak, Scotch grass-fed dry-aged beef, salt marsh rack of lamb and Australian Wagyu beef, as well as seafood like Alaskan king crab legs and Maine lobster. Cruisers can choose from several sauces to round out their main courses.
Starters comprise salmon, lobster tail, Caesar salad and clam chowder, while sides include steamed broccoli, grilled corn on the cob, onion rings, triple-cooked French fries and mashed potatoes, among other items.
Additionally, the Verandah Bar will feature a list of new cocktails and a selection of wines designed to complement the eatery's food offerings.
The steakhouse is open on sea days for lunch (noon to 1:30 p.m.) at a cost of $25 per person and dinner (6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.) for $39 per person, with some menu items carrying an additional surcharge.
