From Cunard:

In a world-first, more than 120 crew aboard Cunard Line’s flagship Queen Mary 2 gathered together on the ship’s bow in Sydney today for a dramatic portrait marking the legendary liner’s 10th birthday.

The history-making photo captured crew from every one of the liner’s myriad staff roles – from gentlemen dance hosts and housekeepers to the kennel master and florist – to create an iconic image of Queen Mary 2’s luxury life at sea.

Props featured in the shoot ranged from two dogs for the on board kennel, to a double bass and a harp for the liner’s musicians, and a large ice carving for the resident ice carver.

Months in the making, the historic image was organised in Australia to symbolize the strong link between Queen Mary 2 and Australia while commemorating the liner’s 10th birthday.
