    Queen Mary 2 Overview

    Queen Mary 2

    (from 215 verified customers)

    Queen Mary 2 is the flagship of the Cunard Fleet. One of the three ships making up the entirety of the Cunard fleet. Launched in 2004 and scheduled to be refurbished in November 2020. She is the world’s only true ocean liner, making her perfectly placed to make the iconic but notoriously rough Transatlantic Crossing. Affectionately known as the 'QM2’, she carries 2691 passengers making her Cunard’s largest ship. Despite being a larger vessel, you will rarely find yourself in a crowd, except perhaps at prime dinner time or a popular theatre show. Highlights of the ship include the largest ballroom at sea and 5-star entertainment nightly in the Royal Court Theatre. Queen Mary 2 is elegant and a true icon to sail on. She honours traditional such as the British tradition of afternoon tea, which includes white-gloved waiters who serve finger sandwiches and scones with cream in the Queens Rooms. Specially commissioned artwork is visible in public rooms, corridors, staterooms and lobbies. Queen Mary 2 is one of the few ships that has a class system, linking staterooms with dining venues.
