Queen Mary 2 Heads Down Under
Cunard Line has announced that in 2012 Queen Mary 2 will be based in Australia for a history-making circumnavigation, which will see her visit the Northern Territory and five states
The “Royal Circumnavigation of Australia” on Queen Mary 2 (the largest ship ever to visit Australia), will be a first for Cunard line. The world’s most famous liner will call at eight Australian ports including Sydney, Fremantle, Adelaide, the Whitsundays, as well as maiden visits to Cairns, Darwin, Melbourne and Brisbane.
In all, Queen Mary 2 will spend 28 nights in Australian waters, as she sails from Cape Town to Sydney via Fremantle and Adelaide, and then circumnavigates the country. As a result, Fremantle, Adelaide and Sydney will each enjoy two visits from the liner during her Australian season.
The Australian deployment will mark the longest period of time that Queen Mary 2 has been based in one country outside of her northern hemisphere home ports of Southampton and New York. The Royal Circumnavigation will go on sale this spring as part of the announcement of the 2012 World Voyage programme. Contact The Luxury Cruise Company on 0800 6123 354 to book.
