Pacific Sun to Join Australia Day Fun

Posted January 25th, 2012

P&O Cruises will decorate its Pacific Sun with two massive Aussie flags, when she takes part in Australia day celebrations in Sydney on Thursday. Pacific Sun will sail into the harbour at about 6am with 199 passengers on board, and will moor in a prime position for the party.

The two giant flags - each measuring a whopping 44mm x 22mm - will be unfurled on each side from around 7am. Carnival Australia CEO Ann Sherry said the event would help launch the 'Sydney Festival of Cruising' which will take place throughout February as the harbour city welcomes a record number of cruise ship visits.

"It's a reminder of the importance of cruise ships to the local economy with combined spending in Sydney by passengers, crew and cruise ship operators of $400 million in 2010-2011 alone," she said.

Cruise Ships in port around the country on Australia Day:

Brisbane - Paul Gauguin, from 6am

Sydney - Pacific Sun, from 6am

Adelaide - Athena, from 8am

Melbourne - Seven Seas Voyager, until 10pm
