Another massive cruise ship was lined up to visit port of Napier, bringing over 24,000 travelers to the city.
Napier Port soon revealed that 70 liners were confirmed for 2018-2019 season, which would kick off via the debut visit of Majestic Princess on October 2.
The 330-metre Majestic Princess will be the 2nd largest cruise ship ever to berth at Napier, after the 348-metre Ovation of the Seas.
Majestic Princess will call in Napier 5 times next season. There will be a ceremony onboard the vessel to mark the maiden visit on October 21, which will see the captain and Napier Port representative exchanging plaques.
A range of studies, such as simulations and mooring analysis have been undertaken to determine that Majestic Princess could berth successfully and safely at Napier Port.
