The QM2 is owned and operated by the Cunard line and was the longest, widest and tallest passenger ship ever built and at a 148,528 GT however She lost the gross tonnage distinction to Royal Caribbean International's 154,407 GT Freedom of the Seas in April 2006. The Queen Mary 2 is the current Cunard flagship and makes regular transatlantic crossings. She was built by Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyard at a cost of $900 million. In common with many modern ships, QM2 has a bulbous bow to reduce drag and thereby increase speed, range, and fuel efficiency. And is the first passenger ship to feature CODAG propulsion.



As well as all the modern features of a cruise ship she also houses More than 5000 specially-commissioned works of art that are visible in the QM2's public rooms, corridors, staterooms and lobbies, having been created by 128 artists from 16 different countries, she also boasts the world’s first planetarium on a ship.

In 2011, the QM2 had her port registry changed to Hamilton, Bermuda, from her original home port of Southampton, England to allow the vessel to host on-board weddings.
