Queen Mary 2 preparing for lengthy stay in new home of Australia

Date Posted: 10 Mar 2010
Category:
The Queen Mary 2 ship from Cunard Cruises is preparing to call Australia its new home in 2012 as it enjoys a rare voyage in the southern hemisphere.

Eight Australian ports, including Sydney, Adelaide and maiden trips to Melbourne and Brisbane will be called into as part of the trip, while in total 28 nights will be spent on Australian waters.

The Queen Mary 2 is more typically seen leaving her home ports in Southampton and New York, but Cunard president and managing director Peter Shanks is looking forward to appealing to an emerging market within the cruise industry.

He said: "Recognising the strong growth of cruising in the Australian market and increased demand from Australians for the unique Cunard Line experience, we are delighted to base the most famous ship in the world, Queen Mary 2, in Australia in 2012."

Mr Shanks added that he expected the demand to be strong for the three circumnavigation options available both from Australian travellers and those around the world looking to pay the country a visit.

The Queen Mary 2 has 14 spacious decks onboard, which host 14 bars, ten restaurants, five swimming pools and a traditional style English public house called the Golden Lion Pub.
