I started this thread to see everyones reactions to Cunard's (Carnival's) newest liner, The Queen Mary 2. I for one can't wait for the ship to begin operation. I think its about time for a shipping company to come out with a ship that looks somewhat like an old ocean liner then one that looks like a box on water. It has classic liner looks like the wrap around promanade deck and rooms such as "The Winter Garden" which was popular on ships in the 1920's and 30's. (I would just like to thank my liner buddy Alan for that info) I have looked at the rooms on board and almost every room brought me back to images of classic liners such as the original Queen Mary, Mauratania, Ile de France and the Normandie. So thats my thoughts on the Queen Mary 2 and I hope someday I will be lucky enough to sail on the new "Queen of the Seas"
