QM2 To Pass Under Golden Gate Sunday

Feb. 2 - KGO - While a lot of people will be glued to their TV Sunday afternoon for the Super Bowl, a super-sized ship will make its way into San Francisco.

The luxury Queen Mary 2 is one of the longest, tallest, and widest passenger ships ever built. It'll pass under the Golden Gate around 3:00 p.m. Sunday, coming in from Acapulco -- its last stop in a round-the-world cruise.

The QM2 is as tall as a 21-story building, and longer than the Eiffel Tower is tall. It can carry 2,600 passengers.

The ship will leave port Monday afternoon when it sets out for Australia and Hong Kong.
