The beautiful Silver Whisper cruise ship is in Fremantle harbour but at the unusual location of C Shed, not the Passenger Terminal.
I believe Freo is due for many cruiseliners in the next weeks, which is great as it has been almost eerie quiet in town lately.
It looks like it is going to be a busy Sunday in Fremantle although there is still rain forecast.
The Queen Mary 2 arrived this morning and thousands of passengers were disembarking to take in the sights. Many hopped on busses to the Pinnacles and the Swan Valley, but a large number also walked into Freo.
City of Fremantle volunteer guides were at hand to assist with directions and information.
Add to that the 10,000 spectators expected this afternoon at Fremantle Oval for the first home game of the Dockers AFL women’s team and it should be buzzing in good old Freo this afternoon.
Come visit Freo today and enjoy the unique atm0sphere and the many quirky shops and cafes you won’t find in any shopping centre!
The World, the largest privately owned cruise ship on earth, is in Fremantle Port just behind the railway station.
The ship is a residential community on the high seas and has people from over 40 countries on board.
There are 165 apartments on the super cruiser for high flyers ranging from $ 800,000 to $ 18.1 million for the top of the range penthouse suite.
Stars such as Madonna and Arnold Schwarzenegger own property on the ship that will be in Freo for a few days before sailing of down the south coast of WA.
The biggest cruise ship to visit Australia finally left Fremantle Port with an hour delay today because a bigger crane was needed to lift the gangplank due to high tide and a very strong sea breeze, and what an impressive sight the Ovation of the Seas was at 6 pm today when she floated past the Maritime Museum.
It is really nice to see so many people in Fremantle and so many people from all over Perth coming to the port to wave Aussie flags and say goodbye.
It was a rather crisp start of winter this morning but the early sun light always creates some magic for photographers, as these photos taken in Fleet Street and of the arrival of the cruise ship Pacific Eden show.
There were a lot of people and traffic in Fremantle this morning with many of the passengers of the cruiseliner Diamond Princess enjoying our heritage-rich city.
There was a nice market at Kings Square and a real buzz around town, so I hope our retailers and the cafes will benefit from it.
I took some photos with a pretty long lens to show how massive the Diamond Pincess is.
