British luxury line Cunard has revealed four brand-new dining experiences that will be available aboard Queen Anne, the new ship setting sail in May 2024. With the addition of new restaurants Aji Wa, Aranya, Sir Samuels, and Tramonto, guests will have more choices than ever before.

Three of these unique locations on the cruise line’s newest ship will offer for-a-fee evening meal choices, joining the inclusive fare options available in the main dining rooms, Tramonto, and the Golden Lion pub.
