 Berthing Arrangements At Overseas Passenger Terminal Come To A Head!

In another embarrassment for Sydney ports Royal Caribbean International has had to decide which one of its ships will berth at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay.

This has happened because Radiance Of The Seas And Ovation Of The Seas are scheduled to berth at the same time, both ships are scheduled in Sydney on the 28th of January 2017 and the 09th of February 2017.

As we all know this cannot happen and is showing the lack of berthing facilities east of the harbour bridge.

In an embarrassing situation that Royal Caribbean International has been put into, the smaller of the two ships [Radiance of The Seas] has been forced to sit at anchor at Athol Buoy.

For the 09th of February 2017 please see the following information :  you will be ferried to a dedicated Royal Caribbean International marquee that will be set up next to the White Bay cruise ship terminal.

The dates that are affected by these changes are as follows: 20th, 28th January 2017 and the 09th February 2017.

For further information please contact on: 1800 754 500.

While it’s not possible to see two big ships berthed at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at the same time, the situation at hand certainly presents some big issues that Sydney ports need to address!

Sydney ports you need to take some action now !
