Nelson Port welcomes new cruise ship

Published on : Friday, January 18, 2019

Nelson’s first cruise ship of the year has arrived, a brand new visitor to the port.




The Azamara Quest, part of the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, docked in Nelson on Wednesday for a one-day stop, bringing 690 guests and over 400 crew to the city for the day.



Port Nelson Harbour Master Dave Duncan gave cruise ship Azamara Quest Master Captain Magnus Davidson a memorial Port Nelson plaque, a traditional way to mark a ship’s first visit to port.



The 180-metre cruise ship is on its fourth visit to New Zealand, and will make a total of 37 port calls over two months sailing around the country. The visit to Nelson came as part of an Australia and New Zealand tour which will also visit Gisborne, Stewart Island, and Kaikoura. Azamara Club Cruises Australia and NZ vice president and managing director Susan Bonner said she was excited to show off the boutique wine region of sunny Nelson.



The ship was docked from eight in the morning until nine in the evening, giving the guests a whole day to explore the region.



Nelson Regional Development Agency (NRDA) CEO Mark Rawson said the visit was part of a strategy built by NRDA and Port Nelson working together.
