Luxury Accolade for Queen Mary 2

Cunard’s magnificent Queen Mary 2 has retained her crown after again being voted the best large luxury cruise ship by readers of the prestigious Australian publication Luxury Travel Magazine.

 The win represents the eighth consecutive year that Queen Mary 2 has taken out the Best Luxury Cruise Ship (Large) category of the magazine’s Gold List awards.

 Ann Sherry, CEO of Carnival Australia, which represents Cunard Line in Australia, said it was wonderful to see Australian travellers continue to embrace the liner.

 “To receive this award eight years in a row reinforces the strong relationship that Queen Mary 2 has with Australia, and is a tribute to the truly memorable cruise experience she provides.”

 Queen Mary 2 recently completed her inaugural circumnavigation of New Zealand, which included her maiden call to Fiordland National Park, and is set to return to local waters in 2014, when she will undertake her second circumnavigation of Australia.

 The Gold List awards are based on a survey in which thousands of Luxury Travel Magazine’s subscribers and readers are asked to nominate the world’s best hotels, resorts, spas, cruise lines, golf courses, airlines and destinations.
