RMS Queen Mary 2, the flagship of Cunard Line, 345 meters long, 76,000 tons, called Haifa port last Friday. It is the largest ship to visit the port of Haifa.
The vessel is on 42 days trip from Hong Kong to Southampton.
The Queen Mary 2 is the biggest, most sophisticated ocean liner ever to set sail, with the most sophistic marine technology in the world.
Built as a Carnival order for Cunard in 2003, the QM2 was the largest ocean liner at the time ever constructed.
By design, Cunard QM2 is not a cruise ship – it is an express Atlantic Ocean liner for regular crossings during most time of the year. And it belongs to Carnival (owner), while Cunard is only its “bona fide” operator.
QM2 entered service in January 2004 and is the largest, longest, widest, tallest and most expensive passenger liner in history.
