On Monday the Pacific Dawn arrived and was followed by Sea Princess on Tuesday.

There’s more to come with Pacific Jewel expected to arrive on Tuesday, July 8. Pacific Jewelwill spend seven nights at sea, leaving Brisbane before stopping in Airlie Beach en route to Port Douglas.

There are three cruise ships scheduled to arrive in the Whitsundays in July and another four in August.
