QUEEN MARY 2

Queen Mary 2Today's Ship of the Day is, of course, the Queen Mary 2, one of the most magnificent ocean liners ever built. Entered service in January 2004, she combines over 165 years of tradition with modern innovations hardly dreamed of only a few years ago. The QM2, owned by Cunard Line, is 345 meters long, 41 meters wide and a total height from keel to funnel of almost 72 meters. Her 157,000 horsepower, environmentally friendly, gas turbine/diesel electric plant provides power to four pods of 21.5 MW each giving the vessel a maximum speed of 28.5 knots. The Queen Mary 2 has a capacity for 2,592 guests and has all kinds of public rooms such as an art gallery, ballroom, swimming pools, top boutiques and brands such as Harrods, H. Stern's, Chopard and Hermes, etc., etc., etc. all located on 13 decks.

The Queen Mary 2 entered the port of Rotterdam early this morning and is now located at the Holland Amerikakade. She is scheduled to depart at 18:00 this afternoon with destination Zeebrugge and Southampton. From Southampton the QM2 will make two roundtrip transatlantic crossings to New York, back to Southampton, back to New York again and then again back to Europe. She is scheduled to visit the Port of Rotterdam again next October.
