THE Queen Victoria cruise ship has arrived on a sparkling morning for her first visit to Sydney.
The two-month-old luxury liner entered Sydney Harbour just before daybreak surrounded by an escort of private yachts.

Stretching 294 metres in length, the 90,000-tonne ship is the second largest in the Cunard fleet and the newest liner ever to visit Australia.

Her much older sister, the Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2), arrives in Sydney 25th feb

The Queen Victoria will have stay overnight in Sydney, and the two ships will pass each other around 6.30pm (AEDT) at Fort Denison tomorrow evening.
While this is the first world voyage of the Queen Victoria, it will be the last visit to Sydney and final world voyage for the QE2.
The royal rendezvous will come almost a year to the day after the QE2 and the Queen Mary 2 passed each other in Sydney Harbour.

That historic event brought traffic chaos to Sydney when hundreds of thousands descended on the CBD to get a glimpse of the two ships.
