Queen Victoria is here, Queen Elizabeth coming tomorrow

One of the world's largest cruise ships Queen Victoria is in Sydney today. The newest liner from Cunard Line - Queen Victoria docked Circular Quay this morning.

Queen Victoria is just two months old, and she is designed like a classic ocean linear. The luxury suite on board will set you back AU$2500 per person per night. I certainly can't afford that. If you want to take the best suite with butler around the world for two is more than $500,000. (Don?)

Tomorrow, another large cruise ship - QE2 or The Queen Elizabeth 2 will arrive in Sydney for the last time tomorrow, and they will pass each other tomorrow in the Harbour.

Queen Mary (Feb 2007)Both Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth 2 are operated by Cunard Line. It's other ship Queen Mary was here in February 2007, traffic was very very bad.

Not just the two ship cruise ships coming to Sydney tomorrow, there are also two sport matches: Australia vs India one-day cricket match starts at 2.15pm at the SCG, and at the next door, the A-League grand final between Central Coast and Newcastle at Sydney Football Stadium from 5:00pm. Also the Mardi Gras Harbour Party at Mrs Macqurie's Point from 3:00pm. The two Queens will cross part in the Habour at 6:30 pm. Traffic is expected to have long delays in the city and the Moore Park.

Visiting Sydney tomorrow? Use public transport.

I'll pass. If I want to go out on the water, it'd be for a maximum of six hours, and it'd probably be for fishing. Cruising and an overnight stay aren't my thing.
