Carnival Australia ships have been carrying humanitarian supplies to the hurricane-devastated Vanuatu islands since, but passengers haven’t been allowed ashore during the schedules calls. That’s about to change, however.
Passengers departing Brisbane this Saturday on Pacific Dawn will be allowed to go ashore when the ship calls at Port Vila on Wednesday. Like the ships before it, Pacific Dawn will be carrying humanitarian supplies and building materials to support the reconstruction effort, but just as important to the economy, passengers will be going into town to put dollars into the cash registers.
Three days later, Pacific Pearl will follow and do the same thing.
