16 May 2014 – Officers, staff and crew of Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2, including (front left) Captain Kevin Oprey, master of Queen Mary 2, showed the company’s love for their U.S. homeport of New York City today, as they posed on the ship’s bow while she is docked at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal.
The world’s largest, longest, tallest, widest and most expensive ocean liner ever built, and the most famous and fastest passenger ship currently in operation, is in New York today to celebrate her 10th anniversary in Cunard service. She departed later that afternoon on a celebratory Transatlantic Crossing to Southampton, England.
