This week on UNITED TRAVEL GETAWAY, RENEE WRIGHT goes on board the Queen Mary II – the largest cruise ship ever to visit New Zealand.

While the Queen Mary II is the world’s second biggest liner in terms of tonnage, it is the longest, tallest and widest passenger vehicle ever built. It is two-thirds the length of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and was first put to sea in 2004.

Renee says her Queen Mary II story is a real “how the other half live” kind of piece.

“Obviously buying a cruise on her is going to be well out of most people’s price range, but it was great to be able to get on board and show our viewers around via the programme,” says Renee. “It really is like another world on board. The luxury is extraordinary, and just the sheer size and volume of everything is really striking. Almost 16,000 meals are consumed on board each day.”

Also on this week’s episode of United Travel Getaway: Peru, Liverpool in England; and dolphin spotting in Jervis Bay, fishing in the Rowley Shoals, and the Paramount Adventure Centre on the Gold Coast, all in Australia.
