The Queen Mary 2, the grandest ocean liner ever conceived, paid a visit to San Francisco as part of an around the world voyage. Built at a cost of $800 million, she is 1,132 feet long, 147 feet wide and 154,000 tons. She has a 3,000 guest capacity, a crew of 1,253 and, with power plants that produce 157,000 hp, she can cruise at 28 knots.
