Cunard Line announced that the company has signed a letter of intent to build its super-liner Queen Mary 2 at the Alstom Chantiers de L'Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France. The liner is expected to be launched in the last quarter of 2003. Queen Mary 2 will be the world's longest, largest ever - and the fastest cruise liner since QE2. Once launched, Queen Mary 2 is intended to fly the British flag, with her homeport being Southampton, England.

‘The level of excitement and interest in this project is beyond anything we could have imagined,’ said Cunard Line President and CEO Larry Pimentel. ‘QM2 will measure over 1,130 feet in length,’ Pimentel continued, ‘That's just 117 feet shorter than the Empire State Building is tall. She'll tower nearly 21 stories in height from keel to masthead, with a gross registeredtonnage of nearly 150,000 tons.’

‘But aside from her sheer size,’ said Pimentel, ‘She is a marvel of innovative features, specifically designed for her. For instance, she will be propelled by the world's first four-pod ship propulsion system, utilizing two fixed and two rotating propulsion pods that will enable her to cruise at nearly 30 knots. Inside, she'll have all the dramatic features and grand scale that marked the great liners of the past, enhanced by the latest technology for comfort and convenience. The combination of all of these elements will produce the most luxurious ocean liner ever built.’
