Today Darwin had a visit from the Queen Mary 2 which is a very opulent looking cruise ship owned by Cunard.
The website for the ship describes the Queen Mary 2 as Cunard’s flagship and the most magnificent ocean liner ever built. She offers so much space on board and such an array of state of the art facilities including a 3D Cinema, planetarium and a superb spa – all sounds very nice indeed.
She arrived in Darwin this morning around 9am and drew quite a crowd, mind you at the height and size of her it really is hard not too spot her and wonder just how she gets around!
We popped down after work and got there just in time as she sailed back out of Darwin just as the sun was setting, although they didn’t get one of Darwin’s magnificent sunsets tonight.
We watched her do a very impressive looking three point turn out of the harbour. I don’t think its possible to imagine something so big pretty much turning on the spot but she did and it was very cool to watch.
She is currently on her way to Bali which seems like a very good plan after her trip around Australia!
After watching her set sail again on her journey me and the Aussie stopped for some fish and chips which is always good when you are beside the seaside.
