There’s no denying that cruise ships keep on getting bigger and better every year. We’ve seen cruise ships that push the boundaries of what you’d even consider including on such a vessel – cruise ships with waterslides and rock climbing walls, 3D theaters, and all kinds of other bells and whistles. While all of that is plenty fun, sometimes you want the classic cruise-going experience. You want to feel like you’re on a luxury ocean liner around the turn of the century!
If that sounds like an experience you’ve been looking for, then we want to introduce you to the Queen Mary 2. It is, of course, the sequel of sorts to the original Queen Mary, which operates as a hotel in Long Beach, California. This cruise ship, though, is still sailing the seven seas, and it recently received a massive update that’s got the old girl looking even prettier than ever before!
So, what makes the Queen Mary 2 so special? Why is this the right cruise ship for you if you’re looking for a classically luxurious experience? That’s what we’ll be exploring below. So, come take a look at these 25 stunning pictures of the Queen Mary 2!
