In the presence of Royalty!

In the presence of Royalty!

On Saturday, the Quicksilver Group had the chance to get up close and personal with the most famous cruise liner of the 21st century, Queen Mary 2 (QM2).
 
 The QM2 was launched by Cunard in 2003 and is the only purpose-built passenger ship in the world designed as an ocean liner, not as a cruise ship. A whopping 345m long and carrying a total of 3,948 individuals (2,695 passengers and 1,253 crew), the QM2 is used for cruising and does an annual world tour, circumnavigating the globe in 81 days.  The Creme-de-la- crème tour package is their 99-night world cruise, covering 4 continents and 17 countries with rooms starting at $20,069 per person. This is a luxurious cruise like no other.
 
 Great Adventures made the most of the rare opportunity to get up close to this iconic vessel, conducting a sightseeing tour for excited marine enthusiasts.  Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long to be back in the presence of Royalty again!
