Cunard to Send Its Queens to Australia for the 2nd Time
UK-based cruise line Cunard has revealed plans to send two of its Queens for their second visits to Newcastle, Busselton and Kangaroo Island in Australia during 2018.
The company’s Queen Elizabeth is scheduled to arrive in Newcastle for its second visit on March 1, 2018 as part of the cruise ship’s 122-night world voyage.
Queen Elizabeth, which sailed to Newcastle on a maiden visit in February, is also scheduled to stop in Sydney and Brisbane during its 2018 circumnavigation of the globe, which will feature calls to 39 ports in 25 countries.
Cunard’s 2600-guest cruise ship Queen Mary 2, as part of its 120-night world voyage, is expected to call at Busselton and Kangaroo Island for the second time in February 2018.
Featuring a length of 345 metres, Queen Mary 2 is due to make its first visits to Busselton and Kangaroo Island in February 2017, and return to the destinations exactly one year later during an extended season in Australian waters.
According to Cunard, as part of the 2018 visits, the cruise ship will sail on a 13-night circumnavigation of New Zealand as well as undertake a short cruise to Kangaroo Island.
