THE world’s biggest ocean liner will pass through Scarborough on Monday on its journey across the east coast.

The Queen Mary 2 is due to sail past the town for a third time at 8.15am, having previously visited in 2004 and 2009.

Her visit comes just two weeks after a sail-past by Cunard’s newest ship, the Queen Elizabeth, on September 3.

Hailed as the grandest, most magnificent ocean liner ever built, the Queen Mary 2 last passed through Scarborough in 2009 for the ship’s fifth birthday lap of honour.

The vessel, which will visit Whitby an hour earlier at 7.15am, measures 1,132ft and carries 2,620 passengers and 1,253 crew.

It boasts opulent public areas, extravagant dining rooms, ballrooms, theatres, lounges and the only planetarium at sea.
