A final ‘bon voyage’ next Monday
Tauranga locals are being encouraged to help send off the 2016/17 cruise ship season in style when the final ship setting sail next Monday.
The 80th and final cruise ship of the season is Oceania Cruises vessel Sirena – a 181m long ship which has a gross tonnage of 30,227 and can accommodate 684 passengers and 400 crew.
She will be making two visits to Tauranga – the first taking place this Saturday, with Sirena arriving in port at about 9.15am and scheduled to depart at 7.30pm, followed by a return visit next Monday from 6.45am to 7pm.
This latest cruise ship season has been particularly busy, with 80 ships, 150,000 passengers and more than 64,000 crew members visiting Tauranga since last October. It has also been the first season for cruise ships – four in total – staying in port overnight.
