Meeting the Queens (QM2 & QE2) February 26, 2007Posted by theoxymoron in Australia, Travel.
As I mentioned before the Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Elizabeth 2 have visited the Sydney Harbour a few days ago. I had no idea how big the ship would be until I saw it in real at the Garden island berth (at the naval base). It’s twice the size of the QE2 and rises 62m above waterline.
The truly wealthy can book a two-level cabin for an 80-day round-the world cruise for a staggering 450’000 dollars.
In the evening there was a spectacular party put on for the reunion with fireworks, but unfortunatly we had to leave for our flight to the goldcoast at 11am. The advantage was that I had the chance to take some pictures from a birds eye view while the plane was leaving the Sydney airport.
