Cruise ship turns heads

BEACHGOERS were amazed by the stunning sight of a grand cruise ship in Waratah Bay on Friday.

The P&O Cruises’ vessel Pacific Jewel anchored in the bay to offer travellers a unique view of Wilsons Promontory National Park and the spectacular South Gippsland coastline.

The Pacific Jewel was undertaking a short domestic cruise to and from Melbourne, travelling along the eastern Victorian coast.

“The Pacific Jewel was taking advantage of a scenic sport to give the passengers a view,” P&O Cruises’ Lyndsey Gordon said.

The ship left Melbourne on Wednesday and returned to port on Saturday, and according to P&O Cruises, the vessel will return in the future.

Some guests or crew left the ship for a ride in the bay on a life raft.
