A Closer Look at Queen Mary 2

Queen Mary 2 Cruises


Cunard’s illustrious fleet is probably one of the most recognisable operating in the world today, with regal names that will be familiar to those who are seasoned cruisers and those looking to take a trip of this kind for the first time. At the head of this fleet is the fantastic Queen Mary 2; following the original Queen Mary ship which sailed its last voyage in 1967.

As well as sailing the famous transatlantic crossing between New York and Southampton, Queen Mary 2 also visits many other world regions, just like Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria, and on an annual world voyage. One of the things that helps this iconic vessel stand out from her peers is the briskness at which she can travel. Her top speed of thirty knots and cruising pace of twenty-six knots are faster than any other liner and she achieves it all with such grace and elegance. This is made possible by electric propulsion and gas turbines working in tandem.

If you want any confirmation of her grand stature then all that is needed is a glance at her vital statistics. With a height that reaches 200 feet above the surface of the water and a length of 1,132 feet, she is as tall as a twenty-three story building and three times as long as Big Ben is high. Queen Mary 2 also has 2,000 bathrooms, a hull which weighs more than 300 blue whales, and a group of whistles that includes one from the original Queen Mary in order to preserve her predecessor’s voice.
