The last time I was in Sydney the Queen Mary 2 paid a visit also. That time it was together with the Queen Elizabeth 2. Apparently it’s quite rare for them to be in the same port at the same time, so there was a celebration with a big fireworks display. No such hoopla this time. It seemed an odd coincidence though, that the ship would be in port here both times I was in town. Some also say there is no such thing as coincidence.
According to the internets, this time the ship is on its maiden 101 day voyage around the world. If you ever want to consider taking the journey, be ready to part with between $25,000 and $385,000. (And yes I know the logo is broken. I’ll get to it when I get back from the beach.)
