Hasten with hashtag to win Queen Mary cruise

February 22, 2017 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Cunard is offering a special Queen Mary 2 experience to the spectator who captures the best image of this weekend’s ‘royal rendezvous’ of two of the world’s most famous ships in Sydney – Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth.

Sailing into the Harbour early on Saturday February 25, the two Queens will create an imposing sight in Sydney throughout the day. The 2700-guest Queen Mary 2 will be berthed at Circular Quay, while the 2000-guest Queen Elizabeth will be anchored at Athol Buoy near Taronga Zoo.

The royal rendezvous comes almost 10 years to the day after Queen Mary 2 paid her first visit to Sydney on 20 February 2007, bringing the city to a standstill as spectators lined the foreshore to see the meeting of the Cunard flagship and the legendary QE2.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Queen Mary 2’s first Sydney visit, as well as the ship’s recent AUD 145 million remastering, Cunard is inviting spectators to post an image of one or both of the Queens in Sydney over the weekend (Saturday 25 February and Sunday 26 February) on their personal Instagram or Twitter account, using the hashtag #CunardinSydney to enter the competition.
