Syd book­ing sys­tem

Cruise Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Port Author­ity of NSW has con­firmed it is ex­plor­ing a num­ber of op­tions to ad­dress cruise ca­pac­ity in Syd­ney, in­clud­ing a new book­ing pol­icy.

Cruise Weekly un­der­stands the pol­icy would be a bid­ding sys­tem for cov­er­ing berthing at the White Bay Ter­mi­nal as well as the Over­seas Pas­sen­ger Ter­mi­nal.

This week high level meet­ings have been tak­ing place, with cruise op­er­a­tors seek­ing clar­ity about the pro­posed sys­tem and ur­gently seek­ing de­tails from NSW Ports so they can fi­nalise de­ploy­ments, it’s un­der­stood.

A spokesper­son for the Port Author­ity of NSW told CW a new book­ing pol­icy “would al­low Port Author­ity to bet­ter man­age over­book­ings, can­cel­la­tions and slot amend­ments ef­fi­ciently”.

“It would also al­low equal op­por­tu­nity for cruise lines to make slot ap­pli­ca­tions.”

A re­lease date is TBA.
