Queen Mary 2 is the largest, fastest and most expensive liner ever built; she has cemented her place in maritime history as the most famous passenger ship afloat today. In the course of Queen Mary 2’s 200 Transatlantic Crossings, Cunard Line estimates that a half-million passengers have consumed 8.4 million cups of tea; 980,000 scones; 481,000 bottles of champagne; and have attended 1,400 planetarium shows; 3,000 guest lectures; and 2,000 theater performances. Offering the only kennel facilities aboard a passenger ship, the Queen Mary 2’s staff has cared for more than  1,000 dogs. “Queen Mary 2 embodies the attributes of a true liner, including reserves of stability and deep draught.  Combined with her great size, these attributes ensure that the ship can achieve a level of Atlantic sea-keeping superior to any other liner in history,” said Stephen Payne OBE.  “No other passenger ship is as much at home on the North Atlantic as Queen Mary 2.” This infographic illustrates many of the extravagant offerings found aboard the Queen Mary 2 and innovative design that has fueled her throughout 200 Transatlantic Crossings.
