The Largest Ocean Liner in History, Three Times Larger than the Titanic – 2004

More than 3,000 passengers, served by 1,253 crewmembers, can fit on the vessel. The ship has 15 restaurants and bars, five swimming pools, a casino, a theater, a ballroom hall, and the first planetarium at sea.

The largest transatlantic ocean liner in the world – the Queen Mary 2 – set sail on her maiden voyage from Southampton in England to Fort Lauderdale on Florida. The ship has a total of 17 decks, and is 345 m long and 72 m high. She is powered by a power plant comprised of four sixteen-cylinder diesel engines as well as two gas turbines made on the basis of aircraft jet engines. The maximum power of the whole system is 182,300 horsepower, which enables a maximum speed of 30 knots (56 km / h).

Queen Mary 2 is currently the only ship in service that carries out regular transoceanic transportation on the Atlantic Ocean. In addition, she is also used for cruising and makes a world cruise each year. More than 3,000 passengers, served by 1,253 crewmembers, can fit on the vessel. The ship has 15 restaurants and bars, five swimming pools, a casino, a theater, a ballroom hall, and the first planetarium at sea.

It should be noted that there are passenger ships larger than QM 2 today, but they are not meant for regular transatlantic voyages, so the QM 2 certainly holds the title of the largest transatlantic ocean liner in history. She even has a 3.2 times greater tonnage than the famous Titanic.
