Cunard<.> Line and Athens 2004<.>, the organising committee for the 2004 Olympic Games, signed a memorandum of understanding to position Cunard`s $800-million Queen Mary 2 in the Greek port of Piraeus to serve as a floating hotel during the Games. The 1,310-cabin luxury liner will arrive in Piraeus on August 12, 2004, and remain docked through August 30.



Cunard Line is delighted to be a part of this historic event in Greece<.>, the birthplace of the Olympic Games, said Deborah Natansohn, the line`s senior vice president, sales and marketing. Being selected by the Athens organising committee is a great honour and the first step in a very exciting process.



According to Spyros Capralos, executive director, Athens Organising Committee (ATHOC), Queen Mary 2 will be the centrepiece in an 11-ship flotilla that will host up to 13,280 visitors. We`re delighted that the newest and grandest luxury liner in the world will be the flagship for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.



Scheduled to debut in January 2004, the 150,000-ton Queen Mary 2 will feature sweeping staircases, expansive promenades, luxurious staterooms and among the most lavish suites at sea; nearly three-quarters of her accommodations will have private balconies. Facilities include 10 dining venues; several elegant bars and show lounges; a theatre; a health spa operated by the world famous Canyon Ranch; the world`s first planetarium at sea; a children`s facility, complete with British nannies; indoor and outdoor swimming pools; hot tubs and boutiques.

Cunard Line has operated the most famous ocean liners in the world since 1840. The Cunard fleet has a classic British heritage and includes Queen Elizabeth 2 and Caronia. In December 2003 the line welcomes Queen Mary 2, destined to recapture the glamour of the original Queen Mary, currently a hotel and attraction in Long Beach, CA. An as yet-unnamed newbuild joins the fleet in 2005.
