New Zealand PM John Key announced in October that P&O Cruises would launch its 1800-passenger super liner, Pacific Pearl, in Auckland in December 2010 and use it as a base for a six-cruise summer season:

“This is a big vote of cruise ship market. It also shows that the Government’s commitment to build a cruise ship terminal at Queens Wharf is a worthy investment in the tourism industry,” said Mr Key.

“The cruise industry is of huge value to both national and regional tourism markets, with each visit contributing around $500,000 through port fees, stores and passenger spending.

“Having the Pacific Pearl based out of Auckland can only enhance an industry that is already worth $174 million annually.” (Source: NBR)
