It was a glorious sunny day when these two cruise ships anchored for the day. The Sea Princess on the left carries 1950 passengers and is operated by Princess Cruises – part of Carnival Corporation, the P & O Shipping Co. is also in this group but I don’t know who owns whom – it is hard to keep up these days. The ship on the right is the Marina, 1250 passengers and built in 2011. She is operated by Oceania Cruises. It would have been a good day for the tourist orientated business in Paihia & Russell.
