Columbus visits Savusavu

When the ship Columbus visited us on Sunday with 340 passengers, the town didn't seem so busy, the Pacific Pearl, had close to 2,000 passengers when she called in last week.

We had a beautiful day, sunshine with a gentle breeze, this made it easier for the passengers to disembark for tours around the countryside & to wander around the shops at their leisure.

There wasn't the crowd getting off the tenders, no queue to get back on & it was a much calmer atmosphere all round.

Not all the shops opened their doors it being a Sunday, but think there were enough open to make shopping interesting.

Their departure was delayed until early evening, so it gave the people in town a lovely sight seeing the ship all lit up, anchored just off the main wharf in Savusavu bay.
