“I'm not keen on living on board a ship. However, the Queen Mary 2 is unrivaled in its luxurious decor and the idea of traveling around the world 365 days a year on board one's own

About this topic


RMS Queen Mary 2 is a transatlantic ocean liner. She was the first major ocean liner built since Queen Elizabeth 2 in 1969, the vessel she succeeded as flagship of the Cunard Line.

The ship was named by Queen Elizabeth II in 2004 after the first RMS Queen Mary, completed in 1936. Queen Marywas in turn named after Mary of Teck, consort of KingGeorge V. With the retirement of Queen Elizabeth 2 from active duty in 2008, Queen Mary 2 is currently the only transatlantic ocean liner in operation as a liner, although the ship is often used for cruising, including an annual world cruise.[8][dead link]

At the time of her construction in 2003 by Chantiers de l'AtlantiqueQueen Mary 2 was the longest, widest and tallest passenger ship ever built, and with her gross tonnage (GT) of 151,400 tons, was also the largest. She no longer holds this distinction after the construction of Royal Caribbean International's 154,407 GT Freedom of the Seasin April 2006, which was in turn superseded by the same company's 225,282 GT Oasis of the Seas in October 2009. However, Queen Mary 2 remains the largest ocean liner(as opposed to cruise ship) ever built.

Queen Mary 2 was intended primarily to cross the Atlantic Ocean, and was therefore designed differently from many other passenger ships....
