History of the Ship
Cunard began construction on Queen Mary 2 in 2003. She was to be the new flagship of the Cunard fleet and first ocean liner built since Queen Elizabeth 2 in 1969. She was built primarily for transatlantic voyages in addition to seasonal cruises. There is 40% more steel in Queen Mary 2's hull than in a standard cruise ship. She is also fast, at just over 30 knots (35 MPH). 4 azipod pods provide the power to achieve this speed.

She was launched at Southampton, England on 21 March 2003 with Queen Elizabeth II christening her. When built she was the largest passenger ship built up until Freedom of the Seas in 2006.

What's on Board
Included on this ship is an original whistle from Queen Mary. There are 15 restaurants and bars onboard and the first planetarium at sea. Cabin selection ranges from the Queens Grill Suites (with up to 2249 SF) to Inside Staterooms.

Canyon Ranch operates the spa onboard for all of your treatments.
