Setting sail from Melbourne
Culturally sophisticated and fashionably hip, Melbourne combines edgy street art with gold rush era architecture while offering excellent restaurants and top museums. We love the upmarket beachside neighbourhood of St Kilda, an ideal base to explore the city, or you could spend a few days seeing Victoria's other attractions, such as the beautiful 12 Apostles along the Great Ocean Road, or tasting the excellent wines of the Yarra Valley.
In Melbourne sport is of huge importance, with the Melbourne Cup and Formula One two of the key events you may wish to see. Or perhaps avoid!
Australia: Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third biggest island, situated to the south west of Adelaide. It’s a rural and underdeveloped place, with an abundance of wildlife and some spectacular scenery, such as the weird, weather-sculpted boulders of Flinders Chase National Park.
Arriving in Melbourne
Go wine tasting in the Yarra Valley, one of Australia’s best and most scenic wine regions.
Your home from home
Queen Mary 2 is Cunard’s most magnificent ocean liner and the flagship of the fleet.
What we love
Modern features combined with traditional and elegant décor reminiscent of the golden age of cruising helps create an unforgettable journey particularly when sailing past the Statue of Liberty into New York. We particularly like the excellent Queens Grill accommodation which offers additional space and access to the exclusive Queens Grill restaurant, along with dedicated lounges and deck areas.
