Explorer of the Seas arrived in Wellington this morning, her last port call before arriving in her new home in Sydney for the summer. She departed Fremantle Friday 13 November for a 16-night Australia & New Zealand sailing.
When the ship arrives in her new home of Sydney on 28 November, guests will take part in a historic rendezvous with sister ship Voyager of the Seas in the middle of Sydney Harbour: the first time that two Royal Caribbean vessels have met in Sydney.
Onboard the two ships will be over 10,000 passengers and crew – outnumbering the populations of NSW towns like Parkes and Byron Bay – and injecting almost $1.6 million into the Sydney economy in passenger spend on this one day alone.
