RMS QUEEN MARY 2 Ocean Liner Model 2003 (40in)
The RMS Queen Mary 2 is an ocean liner named after the Cunard Lines original Queen Mary, which was in turn named after British Queen Mary of Teck, wife of King George V. It does not commemorate the reign of Queen Mary II. At the time of her construction in 2003 by the Chantiers de l'Atlantique, the Queen Mary 2 was the longest, widest and tallest passenger ship ever built, and at gross tonnage of 148,528 tons, was also the largest.
She lost the gross tonnage distinction to Royal Caribbean International's 154,407 GT Freedom of the Seas in April 2006, but Queen Mary 2 remains the largest ocean liner (as opposed to cruise ship) ever built, and her width, length, and waterline breadth are unsurpassed by any other passenger ship. The Queen Mary 2 was the first major ocean liner built since the Queen Elizabeth 2 in 1969.
Queen Mary 2's facilities include 15 restaurants and bars, five swimming pools, a casino, a ballroom, a theatre, a planetarium, and kennels.
