Rates from $745: Queen Mary 2 Cruise Special

Posted: Feb. 15th, 2009  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Cruise Special: Queen Mary 2 Celebrates Fifth Birthday. Historic Voyages from $745 per person. Queen Mary 2, the grandest ocean liner ever built and, since the retirement of QE2, the fastest passenger ship in the world, celebrates her fifth birthday on January 12, 2009. And with 2009 fares for Transatlantic Crossings starting from just $745 per person, there is no better time to join the half a million other guests who have so far enjoyed Cunard's flagship.

Queen Mary 2 entered service in January 2004 just four days after being named by Her Majesty The Queen during the most spectacular naming ceremony Southampton, her home port, had ever seen. Since that historic entry into service, Queen Mary 2 has sailed almost 750,000 nautical miles, completed 104 Atlantic crossings (the route for which she was specifically built, the first passenger ship to be built for that trade in 35 years), and made calls to 115 ports in 45 countries. She will spend her fifth birthday in the Caribbean.

Since becoming Cunard's flagship in May 2004, taking over the mantle from QE2, Queen Mary 2 has also become one of the most celebrated ships in the world and successfully continues the Cunard passenger liner tradition established almost 170 years ago.

"This is an important milestone for Queen Mary 2 and we are very proud of her many achievements," said Carol Marlow, president and managing director of Cunard Line. "In her young life, Queen Mary 2 has attracted thousands of well-wishers in many ports around the world, achieving iconic status."

To mark her fifth birthday, Queen Mary 2 will undertake a "lap of honour" around the UK departing from Southampton on October 15, 2009. This will be her first voyage around Britain, a journey that became so popular for QE2 to undertake as crowds came out to welcome her in every port. It is expected that Queen Mary 2, as the flagship of the British merchant fleet, should continue this Cunard tradition. This voyage will feature maiden calls for Queen Mary 2 at Greenock and Liverpool - ports which have close historic ties with Cunard.

"Cunard is one of the oldest names in shipping; however, we currently are sailing the youngest fleet in the industry which we are poised to continue upon the new Queen Elizabeth's debut in 2010," Marlow added.
