Queen Mary 2 in Australia

The Cunard Lines vessel will sail from Cape Town to Sydney, via Fremantle and Adelaide, and will stop at eight Australian ports, including Sydney, Fremantle, Adelaide and the Whitsundays as well as maiden visits to Cairns, Darwin, Melbourne and Brisbane. Her voyage will also include a call at Bali.

Cunard Managing Director Peter Shanks said he expected strong demand for the voyage from both Australian and international markets, adding Sydney was one of the most in-demand ports for cruise ships.

Carnival Australia chief executive Ann Sherry said the decision, set to generate at least £6 million for the local economy, was a sign of confidence in the fast growing Australian cruise market.

The Royal Circumnavigation is scheduled to go on sale in mid-2010 but Cunard is taking expressions of interest from travellers interested in the three sailing options from Sydney, Fremantle or Adelaide.

The vessel will spend a total of 28 days in Australian waters during the voyage and make two visits each to Fremantle, Adelaide and Sydney. Final itineraries are currently being finalised with various port authorities.
