Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

ABELL Point Ma­rina wel­comed 1800 pas­sen­gers from the cruise liner Sun Princess to the Whit­sun­days on Sun­day.

Vol­un­teer cruise ship am­bas­sador co-or­di­na­tor Judi Dunn said the visi­tors booked a to­tal of 364 lo­cal tours through­out the day.

“The pas­sen­gers thor­oughly en- joyed the live mu­sic by Jim Hack­ett and Phil Camp­bell as they ar­rived at the ma­rina and waited to board buses to Air­lie Beach,” she said.

“Even though many of the guests were dis­ap­pointed they didn’t stop in Port Dou­glas, they were de­lighted that they were able to spend a whole day in the Whit­sun­days and we re­ceived fan­tas­tic feed­back from all visi­tors who com­pleted tours.”

Ra­di­ance of the Seas will be the next cruise ship to ar­rive at Abell Point Ma­rina this Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 20 at 7am.

There will be two more cruise ships in Oc­to­ber and a fur­ther two in Novem­ber and De­cem­ber.
