Cruise Ships Coming For RWC


On a day when Queens Wharf is finally open to the public comes news that the cruise ship, Pacific Dawn, with an expected 1590 passengers on board, will be at Queens Wharf during the event.

Almost 5500 passengers will sail into Auckland on three official Rugby World Cup 2011 cruise ships during next year’s event.

The ships will berth on Auckland’s waterfront during the semi-finals and RWC 2011 final .

The others - Rhapsody of the Seas, which will berth at Princes Wharf, has a capacity of 2435 and the 1432-passenger MS Volendam will berth at Wynyard Wharf .

The first stage of the Wynyard Quarter development (Jellicoe Street and the public plaza at its western end, as well as a retail and entertainment precinct on North Wharf) will be ready for the tournament.

Work has also begun on the new Viaduct Events Centre on Halsey Street. And as we know, plans are under way for Party Central at Queens Wharf.
