11 December 2012 9:00 am. Ocean Princess became the first cruise ship to dock at the newly re opened Vuna wharf.

Ocean Princess is owned by Princess Cruise Lines LTD and it came to Tonga with approximately 500 passengers & 370 crew members.

The cruise ship came from Sydney to Auckland and now here in the Kingdom of Tonga.

Board Members of the Port Authority were there to welcome the cruise ship to the Kingdom. There were stalls raised at the wharf so that our local people could sell out their Tongan Handicrafts.

Opening of the new wharf and the arrival of Ocean Princess to Tonga will be marked in the history of Tonga as this is the beginning of the new phase of our tourism industry. Ocean Princess left Tonga on 11th December 2012 at 6:00pm headed to Samoa.
