A special function was hosted onboard the ship during the evening, bringing together scores of Australia’s leading women from a range of fields. The event was hosted by Ann Sherry, who was named the overall winner in the 2015 Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence Awards and is the Executive Chairman of Carnival Australia, which accounts for seven of the world’s leading cruise lines in Australia, including Cunard.
