"...experience it and then say if from your own heart..."

Captain Kevin Oprey comes from a long sea-faring background where his father, grandfather, and great grandfather were all at sea. From a very early age, Captain Oprey knew the sea was his destiny.


As Captain of the marveled Queen Mary 2 under Cunard, Kevin Oprey is in ultimate command of the vessel. As a Captain, he is responsible for a safe and efficient operation, including cargo operations, navigation, crew management, and ensuring that the vessel complies with local and international laws, as well as company and flag state policies.
