Default Christmas Island

Does anyone know if it is true that the Dawn Princess has stopped going to Christmas Island. Just read somewhere they they tell you they are going but they actually don't stop there anymore. If anyone knows the answer or if they replaced this stop with another one I would appreciate it. Thanks Nanc

Default Re: Christmas Island

Nanc,

My parents took one of the "Hawaii/Tahiti" cruises aboard MV Dawn Princess last fall. Shortly before the cruise, they received notification that the tender pier on Christmas Island had sustained storm damage that had not been repaired, and therefore that there was no way to go ashore there. As a result, the ship did not bother to anchor but simply sailed past the island, slowing so passengers could have a good look.

AFAIK, Princess Cruises intends to resume calling at Christimas Island as soon as repairs to the pier permit passengers to go ashore. I would think that such repairs would be a very high priority for local officials and especially for the local merchants since the economic impact of a cruise ship calling there is pretty substantial.

Norm.
