Sydney was the turnaround port for Ruby Princess which was due to sail at 6.45p.m. on Sunday on a 13-night round cruise to New Zealand with around 4,200 passengers and crew.
Processing new arrivals
There was a delay in processing the passengers who had arrived that morning from a round cruise to New Zealand and the ship sailed at 10.45 p.m.
Princess Cruises’ director of public relations, Meg Koffel, said the company’s questionnaire is ‘in line with our commitment to maintain a healthy onboard environment.’
