Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 09/04/2018

Carnival Legend, a cruise ship that was scheduled to dock in Fiji harbor this weekend, was diverted and arrived in Nuku’alofa this morning.

This cruise ship is from Australia carrying 2300 passengers.

A Tourist Officer from the Ministry of Tourism, ‘Anaseini ‘Otumuli says this was not part of the plan but due Cyclone Josie the cruise ship had to be diverted to Nuku’alofa.

She says Carnival Legend was in Tahiti before arriving in Tongatapu with total of 917 crews onboard.

The Carnival Legend will depart Tongatapu today for Australia.

This is the 10th cruise ship to dock at Nuku’alofa Harbor for this year.
