Queen Mary 2 Docked next to Norwegian Star

These photos are pictures of the QM2 or Queen Mary 2, the flagship of the Cunard Line.  If you look to the right upper corner of the photo you can see the Norwegian Star docked nearby.  The QM2 is about twice the size of the cruise ships of Norwegian Cruise Lines and can hold over 3,000 passengers.  Actually Queen Mary 2 is not exactly considered a cruise ship, although it does serve that purpose.  It’s officially an ocean liner. Just a bit of side trivia–each berth on the QM2 cost about $300,000 to build which is about twice the price per berth on a regular cruise ship.  The whole ship cost about $900 million to build.

    Really huge in size. Just to share with you on your comment on tauhu on my blog – I think it originated from China as its commonly used in Chinese cooking.

  3. First of all, I truly appreciate all of your visits to our blogs and your very fine comments! I did visit your wife’s blog and will be back there, too.

    These are beautiful photographs of a magnificent ship. I know the Queen Mary II was big but I didn’t realize how big. It would be quite an experience to sail on her.

    But you have retired as a crew member of the cruise line?
