Queen Mary 2 ( The Ship )

A transatlantic journey on the QM2 isn't a cruise, it's a crossing, and many people use the QM2 as their preferred mode of transport between Europe the United States.  The Queen Mary 2 is no mere 'cruise ship', but a real ocean liner built with the extra strength power to withstand the rigours of the North Atlantic in all weathers.  The 2003-built QM2 took over the transatlantic service in 2004 from Cunard's 1967-built Queen Elizabeth2. sizes of Queen Mary 2RMS Titanic, a human, a car, a bus and an Airbus A380 airliner

On 10 January 2007, Queen Mary 2 started her first world cruise, circumnavigating the globe in 81 days. On 20 February, she met her fleet-mate, Queen Elizabeth 2, also on her 2007 world cruise, inSydney harbour. [62] This is the first time two Cunard Queens had been together in Sydney since the original Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth served as troop ships in 1941.[63] Despite the early arrival time of 5:42 am, the Queen Mary 2's presence attracted so many viewers that the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Anzac Bridge were blocked.[64] With 1,600 passengers leaving the ships in Sydney, Cunard estimated the stopovers injected more than $3 million into the local economy.
