Title: Sydney 22 Feb 2011 A Royal Randez Vous
Post by: Glenn Towler on June 25, 2009, 12:57:52 pm
Queen Elizabeth will make her maiden visit to Australia on her obvious maiden world cruise, she will be joined also in Sydney on the day by the Queen Mary 2.

Queen Mary 2 looks to be staying over night and sailing on the afternoon of the 23 Feb 2011 with the Queen Elizabeth looking to be sailing in the evening of the 23 Feb 2011.  Will post more info as it comes to hand.

Hi Glenn    
 I have just received information from Cunard. It will be possible to sail from Southampton on Queen Victoria to New York, where she will meet both Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth.
Transfer to Queen Elizabeth, sail to Sydney Australia via Panama Canal and Hawaii.
Transfer once again, this time to QM2 and sail to UK via Japan and the Suez.

That's my type of cruise!!!!

It will be intresting to see what the packages for are worth.  Who knows if the Arabs have worked out what they are doing with the QE2 by then and have her refitted might be able to do a night on the QE2 as well!! and even may be posible to do a night on the original Queen Mary in LA as well.  But is should bet a good day the two of them in Sydney, hopefuly they won't arrive too early!!
