Looks like 2 ships in Suva today.

Pacific Dawn and Sun Princess .

I realise the wharf can physically handle 2 cruise ships ,

but I wonder if Suva can handle 4,000 passengers on a Sunday?

7 Jan ..

When Radiance of the Seas of the Seas docked in Auckland this morning , the sea was just like a mirror. It was so calm , her bow was reflected in the water as she approached Queens Wharf.

Cool, I hope that the city can handle it, although I imagine everyone on the dawn will stay close to Port Arthur and the east coast just north from there.:D

Nice day, is NZ going to get any of the heat from Australia in the next couple of days, or does the Tasman suck all the heat up?:D

Depends which way the wind is blowing...I know when it rains in QLD it generates heat that wafts over here and gives us great weather.

 

Just heard on the news that the racing at Caulfield has been abandoned today due to extreme heat. WOW .Has that ever happened before?

Regents Seven Seas Voyager is in Auckland today. A bit damp for them , but it should clear up later.

Note the line up of busses. Only 700 guests but the shore tours are free.

Shame about the weather, that is something you cannot buy to suit. At least with Auckland, the weather may clear in the next hour or two and still be nice for the majority of the day. That is waht happened when we were there last year.:D

The weather did indeed clear late morning and they had bright sunny day. Strong winds but clear and sunny.

Nice shot from the cam of them backing out into the harbour this evening...
