Brisbane Welcomes a Queen

Brisbane has welcomed the largest ship ever to visit Queensland, with the Cunard's magnificent 151,400 Tonne Queen Mary.

The Queen Mary 2 is the worlds largest ocean liner.

Truely a remarkable ship, elegant, luxurios and just standing on her deck makes one feel part of something very special.

Carrying 4000 passengers and crew, the ship is 62m high and 345m long, making it more than 2 1/2 times the length of Suncorp Stadium.

Brisbane has become the second largest cruise port in Australia, and visitors to Brisbane has grown by 500%.  To read more on cruises departing from Brisbane go to our Cruise Brisbane page.


Carnival Australia Puts Cruising on the Meeting Agenda

Carnival Australia represents P&O Cruises Australia, Princess Cruises, Cunard Line, P&O Cruises world wide, as well as Carnival Spirit's Australian Deployment. With more than 30 ships on offer, people are seeing cruising as a great environment for meetings as it allows organisers and delegates to blend productive meetings with an inspiring and relaxing holiday.

What's more, the all-inclusive nature of a cruise also means it is very price competitive compared to events on land, with one cruise fare including accommodation, food and entertainment.

Think about a cruise for your next meeting or conference.

Pacific Sun Sold

Carnival Australia announced the sale of Pacific Sun after more than seven years with P&O Cruises, and half a million cruise passengers.

Her last cruise departs Brisbane 1 July 2012

In October, Carnival Australia will welcome Carnival Cruise Line's 88,500 Tonne Carnival Spirit to sail full time from Sydney. Carnival is new to the Australian market with the emphasis on fun. I think it will do very well in the Australian market.

Since 2007, Carnival Australia's fleet has grown from just two ships to six superliners, soon to be seven!

Brisbane Welcomes the Sun Princess

Queensland's capital city of Brisbane is now home to not one, but TWO Australian cruise ships.

The Sun Princess has become the first international cruise ship to be based in Brisbane, and will depart from here on 10 round-trip cruises to New Zealand, Asia and the South Pacific over the next 5 months (until March, 2011).

She will join Brisbane-based P&O cruise ship, Pacific Dawn, and is expected to carry an estimated 20,000 holiday makers over the coming months.
