Cairns Has Welcomed Australia’s Latest Cruise Ship With P&O Cruises' Pacific Aria Making Her Maiden Call To The City Today.
Heralded as a game-changer for the Australian cruise industry, the 55,820-tonne Pacific Aria docked at the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal in the heart of the city this morning for a two-day visit.
Pacific Aria will return to Cairns on two further occasions this year (Dec 20-21 and Dec 30-31), while her sister ship Pacific Eden will make her maiden call to the city on December 22, in advance of her first season of cruises from Cairns in late 2016.
Pacific Eden will be the first cruise ship to ever be based in Cairns when she sails from the city on a series of nine cruises between September and November 2016, including new seven-night cruises to Papua New Guinea. The ship will return to Cairns in 2017 for a second season of sailing, offering 10 cruises from Cairns from August to November 2017, including the first ever international sea break, a four-night cruise from Cairns to Papua New Guinea.
Today’s maiden call follows the cruise line’s inaugural visit to Hamilton Island yesterday.
