World's largest ocean liner docking here
The world's largest ocean liner, the Queen Mary 2, is scheduled to dock in Honolulu Harbor tomorrow morning.
The 151,000-ton, 1,132-foot-long vessel carries 2,592 passengers and 1,253 crew members, who are on the ship's first round-the-world cruise. The Queen Mary 2 left Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Jan. 10 and is scheduled to sail for 81 days.
Passengers on the full round-the-world cruise paid between $21,000 a person for a lower inside berth and $185,000 a person for a top suite, said Cunard Lines spokesman Brian O'Conner.
The Honolulu leg of the cruise is sold out, he said.
The 236-foot-tall vessel left San Francisco on Monday after passing under the Golden Gate Bridge, clearing the bottom of the bridge by just 27 feet. It heads next to American Samoa.
The Queen Mary 2 is scheduled to arrive at 7 a.m. and depart at 6 p.m. tomorrow from Pier 2. This is the second visit to Honolulu for the ship, which docked here on March 1. Its sister ship, the Queen Elizabeth 2, docked in Honolulu last month and is also on a round-the-world cruise.
The two ocean liners are scheduled to be in Sydney Harbor on Feb. 20.
The $800 million Queen Mary 2 entered service in January 2004.
