Cunard Cruise Line
Queen Mary 2
The Biggest and Fastest Passenger
Ship In History
2 - the largest, longest, widest, tallest and most expensive passenger ship
Queen Mary 2, the first Cunard liner to be built in over three decades, will enter service in January 2004 and will be the fastest passenger ship built since Queen Elizabeth 2 entered service in 1969.
Built by the renowned shipyard of Chantiers de l'Atlantique in Saint Nazaire, France, birthplace of such famous liners as Normandie, France (now Norway), and Ile de France, the 150,000-ton QM2 is destined to become the benchmark by which all other passenger ships will be judged.
For the last six decades, there has always been a Cunard "Queen" on the sea. QM2 will be the heir to their grandeur and elegance and at the same time the greatest luxury liner of the new century. The ship will feature classic Cunard hallmarks such as sweeping staircases, expansive promenades, stylish restaurants and gracious public rooms of an imposing scale. The sheer size of the vessel has enabled Cunard to create a variety of passenger spaces - from a majestic, three-storey dining room to intimate bars and lounges to the first sea-going planetarium.
With a passenger capacity of 2,620 (lower berths), Queen Mary 2 will have a space ratio per passenger of 57.25, making her among the roomiest of the world's larger passenger ships. Spacious staterooms, nearly three quarters of which will have their own private balcony, will offer a level of luxury unprecedented at sea.
