QM2-head-on-in-Milford-Sound---JM--New_DSC_3336.jpgCunard flagship Queen Mary 2 made history today as the largest vessel to enter New Zealand’s spectacular Milford Sound in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Fjordland National Park.
In the south-west corner of South Island, the sound – named after Milford Haven in Wales – is a 10-mile-lomg inlet hemmed in by granite cliffs rising to 4,000 ft. Mitre Peak, immediately astern of QM2 in the picture, reaches to 5,560 ft
The ship continued to nearby Doubtful Sound and Dusky Sound during its maiden 12-day circumnavigation of New Zealand.
