If this situation arose as a result of scheduling, it is nothing less than inexcusable.

Unlike other areas of the world, the next "appropriate port" for a large passenger vessel in Austrailia may entail sailing thousands of miles.

Although I don't know, I would find it incomprehensible if such vessels would not have have their berths on their itineraries assigned weeks if not months before they depart for a cruise.

In any event, absent an extreme emergency, the situation is again, nothing less than reprehensible.
