Case Study: Queen Mary

Me and my classmates gathered together awhile ago to make our SIS case study. We had our tuna flakes and eggs again, and was prepared by Avy.

My case study is about the information system at a cruise ship named Queen Mary 2. What a lovely, luxurious cruise ship it is. I wanna own one. Bwahaha. :)

It includes 5 swimming pools, a spa (Royal Ranch Canyon Spa Club) , a planetarium (Winter’s Garden), a two-story theatre that seats 1,000 (Royal Theatre), a casino (Empire Casino), bars (Golden Lion, Veuvet Cliquot Champagne Bar), restaurants (Britannia Restaurant, Queen’s Grill, Todd English, King’s Court), ballroom (Queen’s Room), a café (Boardwalk café), a recreation area (Sports Centre), a 500 seat theatre-like place also for conference (Illuminations), a clubhouse (Commodore Club), a library and bookshop, shops (Mayfair Shops), a nightclub (G32 Nightclub), luxurious kennels, a nursery staffed with British nannies and wine collection at sea.

Queen Mary 2 Facts:

Ø QM2 is five times longer than Cunard's first ship, Britannia (230 ft.)

Ø QM2 is 113 feet longer than the original Queen Mary

Ø QM2 is more than twice as long as the Washington Monument is tall (550 ft

Ø QM2 is 147 feet longer than the Eiffel Tower is tall (984 ft.)

Ø QM2 is more than 3 ½ times as long as Westminster Tower (Big Ben) is high (310ft.)

Ø QM2 is only 117 feet shorter than the Empire State Building is tall (1248 ft.)

Ø QM2 is more than three times as long as St. Paul's Cathedral is tall (366 ft.)

Ø QM2 is as long as 41 double-decker London buses (31 ½ ft. each)

Ø QM2's whistle will be audible for 10 miles

Did You Know...

The height of QM2’s funnel, at 62 metres above the water line, has been limited in order for her to be able to pass under Verazzano Narrows Bridge in New York.

Artists representing 128 countries have been commissioned to provide more than $5 million worth of art.

Approximately 250 tonnes of paint will have been applied using spray guns covering an
area of 550,000 square metres.

Cunard has entered into partnership with the University of Oxford to provide a programme of authors, historians, artists, scientists and celebrities to enrich the onboard experience. (*And I searched it.. it's called the Cunard ConneXions. *)

A single joystick on the Bridge manoeuvres her sideways, at an angle or she can even remain stationary over a fixed spot on the earth by use of satellites and wind gauges. (*high tech*)

QM2 is the only ship that can boast a Planetarium. (*Gah. In my ship I will have.. a skating rink.. etc. etc. Ang wala sa iba.. nasa ship ko. haha*)

There are one thousand, two hundred and fifty three officers and crew onboard QM2.

My ship would then be called Angelblush. Ay ang korny! haha.
