The Darwin cruise ship season kicks-off today with the arrival of the Sun Princess. Almost 2000 people will converge on Darwin for a day of site-seeing and shopping on their way from Perth to Sydney. Minister for Tourism and Culture, Lauren Moss said cruise ships provide a welcome boost to the Territory economy during the quieter times on the Top End calendar. “The Territory Labor Government continues to work with Darwin City and Waterfront Retailers Association and Tourism Top End to provide a Territory welcome to visitors throughout the cruise ship season. There will be 43 cruise ship visits to Darwin between now and July, bringing with them almost 47,000 passengers to enjoy a taste of the Top End,” Ms Moss said.
