P&O Cruises Australia’s Pacific Eden and Pacific Explorer were due to sail late in the afternoon on three-night short breaks to nowhere, but were kept in the harbour overnight.
Strong southerly winds continued to batter the New South Wales coast this morning, generating swells of up to 9 metres, but both ships are underway today.
‘Cruising would have been uncomfortable in those conditions and the delay has been in the interest of guest amenity,’ a Carnival Australia spokesperson said.
‘While some guests were naturally disappointed, most were happy to enjoy the facilities on these fabulous ships in the shelter of the harbour.'
