P&Over FOR FREMANTLE

The Pacific Eden cruiseliner floated into Fremantle Port this morning and since the P&O Line has announced they will no longer call Freo home, I thought to capture this historic moment of one of the last P&O cruiseships in Fremantle.

The railway lines symbolise the end of the line.

    or maybe it is just an excuse for Carnival Cruises not meeting its bottom line in visitors on its cruises….always easier to blame the other bloke

    CAT runs past the Maritime Museum, Pete, but including them for just the dat of arrival and departure is probably too hard to schedule.

    I’ve been on P&O cruises where the port of call’s facilities are far far worse than good old Freo. Perhaps P&O are simply cost cutting !

    When a cruise ship is in port maybe one of the CAT buses can include the passenger terminal on the circuit … perhaps that’s already happening ? ?

    Yes I know and have reported that it is not just about Fremantle port but about Broome, Exmouth, geraldton, etc. Clayton.

    With the State Government is dire financial problems I doubt though anything van be done in a hurry about that and that is a shame for all ports involved and for all those who supply food, etc. to the cruise operators.

    Catchy headline Roel!

    It’s not all over for Fremantle and their/our relationship with Carnival Cruises and P&O Australia, but we have to do something…… and don’t be confused it’s just about a makeover for Fremantle and the Cruise Terminal, it involves an upgrade of the facilities in Geraldton, Exmouth and Broome.

    I see many parallels with the support these Cruise Ships are demanding and what Qantas demanded in terms of State Government support which was provided to get Qantas to commit to the direct Perth – London service.
