Silver Muse is one of the few ultra-luxury vessels to visit the city this season. The other ultra-lux vessel, the Seabourn Sojourn, with 450 guests, sailed into the harbour on Wednesday, June 5. Passengers walking the streets of Cow Bay said the weather was the best they’d experienced along the 22-day journey, including a visit to Japan and Russia.

On Seafest Sunday, the Oceania MS Regatta is set to sail into the harbour for the day. Most of the Seafest activities on June 9 are taking place along the waterfront, offering additional entertainment to the approximately 680 guests spending the day on the North Coast.

This cruise ship season will see 22 ships to call on Northland Terminal, and approximately 11,138 passengers in 2019.
