CunardÕs magnificent flagship Queen Mary 2 made history today, becoming the largest ship to visit Milford Sound in New ZealandÕs stunning World Heritage-listed Fiordland National Park.
Measuring 345 metres long and reaching 62 metres above the water, the 151,400-tonne liner cruised the waters of Milford Sound as well as neighbouring Dusky Sound and Doubtful Sound as part of her maiden circumnavigation of New Zealand. The 12-day journey around New Zealand will end in Sydney on Tuesday (March 19).
Carrying more than 2500 guests, Queen Mary 2 remains the biggest ship to sail to New Zealand.
Cunard returns to Australia with shorter cruises in 2018
