Sailing: In Feb 2012 she is circumnavigating Australia and after that she completes her World cruise via Asia and back to Southampton by mid March 12. She generally does trans Atlantic between Southampton to New York, and once a year a world cruise.

She is the largest cruise liner to come into Auckland harbour and can only berth at Jellico Wharf at the container terminal.
