The cruise ship season is gathering momentum with 9 ships due in the New Year. Pacific Jewel steamed in on New Year’s Eve and, with the Christmas holiday crowd, swelling numbers almost wore our shop staff out as visitors lined up out of the door. “The World ” – the only ship to have more crew than passengers. We still maintained a presence on the wharf for the less than 200 passengers expected. 3 domestic and 4 international ships are still to come this season. Thanks to our volunteers for their hard work! If you would like to volunteer – call Bob at the museum on 64962094.
