Queen Victoria and QE2's Royal Rendezvous in Sydney will mark Queen Victoria's first visit to the emerald city and QE2's final call -- thirty years to the day since her maiden visit. It comes almost a year to the day after the spectacular Sydney Royal Rendezvous of Queen Mary 2 and QE2. The new Cunard website -- www.queen-victoria.com.au - will enable Australians to follow the countdown to the ships' arrivals in Australia, with bridgecams providing a bird's eye view of the ocean liners' travels. The website also provides comprehensive information on each ship, including images and virtual tours, as well as details of the ships' rendezvous in Sydney. Launched in the UK in December 2007, the 90,000-tonne Queen Victoria will be the youngest ever ocean liner to visit Australia when she arrives in February. Carrying 2000 guests, Queen Victoria's first world voyage is a 106-night odyssey around the globe. She will also visit Melbourne, Brisbane on February 26 and Port Douglas on February 29, 2008. Meanwhile, QE2's final Sydney visit marks her 24th call to the city since her first arrival in 1978. During her 40 years of service, the 70,327-tonne QE2 has carried more than 2.5 million passengers and sailed almost 5.5 million nautical miles -- more than any ship in history. QE2's last Australian visit will also see her call at Melbourne (February 29), Adelaide (March 2), Albany (March 4) and Fremantle (March 5). QE2 will leave the Cunard fleet in November 2008 to become a luxury floating hotel at Dubai's new tourism and lifestyle hub, The Palm Jumeirah. CUNARD WEBSITE Marks two Queens' historic world voyages Cunard has launched a new website to enable Australians to follow its magnificent new ocean liner, Queen Victoria, as she makes her way to Australia on her maiden world voyage, along with her gracious elder sister, Queen Elizabeth 2, sailing on her final world voyage.
