Australia has a new cruise ship, “The Ovation of the Seas”. It is the fourth largest cruise ship in the world, and today, on it’s maiden voyage, it visited Hobart.


At 18 decks high, it looked impressive moored up on our waterfront, dwarfing the pier buildings. The city welcomed the 4,500 passengers and 1,500 crew and Tasmania will benefit from the tourist dollars that are spent while the ship is here. The number of cruise ship visits is increasing year on year as our tourism industry grows.
