QUEEN MARY 2 PHOTO GALLERY

Here’s a series of interior and exterior shots, taken aboard Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2 as she sailed westbound on her last scheduled transatlantic crossing of 2014. The monumental ocean liner left Southampton soon after midnight on December 15th, 2014,some seven hours late,  owing to a problem with one of the Azipods. None the less, she arrived in New York on time at 0630 the following Monday, December 22nd.

The weather was unusually calm for a crossing at any time of year, never mind one undertaken in the middle of December. At one stage assailed by a Force 9, the great, graceful ocean liner rode out the storm with astonishing grace and poise.

So, without further ado, I give you the legend that is Queen Mary 2. Enjoy!
