Cunard Captain Finds A Unique View From the Bulbous Bow

During this past week of the Queen Mary 2’s World Cruise, Captain Kevin Oprey took a short moment to enjoy the view from a rather interesting spot rather than the navigational bridge.

According to Cunard, the Queen Mary 2 briefly dropped anchor off of the Bali Coast to stage the photographs of Captain Oprey. For the photo shoot, the Captain surveyed the scene from the Queen Mary 2’s bulbous bow, an underwater projection that minimizes the creation of bow waves around the waterline when the ship is under way.

The unique photo shoot was used to celebrate the Queen Mary 2’s 10th anniversary year and her World Cruise.
