ShipParade On Board Report: QM2: Ocean Liner or Cruise Ship?
When Samuel Cunard proudly watched his paddle steamer Britannia set sail for the New World from Liverpool for the first time on July 4th, 1840, he could not have imagined that his last name would grace a liner that is more than 100 times larger than Britannia . The brand new Queen Mary 2 is larger, longer, wider and higher than any other passenger ship ever built en was designed to operate on cruises as well as transatlantic voyages between New York and Southampton.
Ever since Cunard announced on March 9, 2000 that the French yard of Chantiers de l'Atlantique would be building a new Queen, the cruise line's publicity machine ran at full speed, culminating in the much publicized maiden arrival of Queen Mary 2 in her homeport of Southampton on December 26, 2003. Every news bulletin in Europe and the United States paid attention to what was referred to as the start of a new era in ocean travel. On January 8, 2004, HM Queen Elizabeth officially named the new ship in a ceremony that emphasized Cunard's British heritage.
But exactly how British is Queen Mary 2? Being a part of US-based Carnival Corporation since 2000, Cunard Line is now run from Florida. Even though Queen Mary 2 is registered in Southampton and has a predominantly British complement of officers, she is the product of the world's biggest cruise company and has been designed to cater for a largely American following. With this in mind, I traveled to Southampton on a bleak Saturday in January, excited about the prospect of spending a night on board Queen Mary 2.
