Cruise Line Announces Record-Setting Bookings

Oceania Cruises has some good news for the industry with its Labor Day promotion setting a record in its cruise bookings.

Due to bad weather conditions near Mooloolaba on Australia’s sunshine coast, the Carnival Spirit was forced to cancel the call.

The Spirit class cruise ship which is operated by Carnival Cruise Line was scheduled to visit Mooloolaba today with a 8:00 AM arrival. The ship was going to make its maiden visit to the town but was too dangerous to tender due to sea conditions.


Carnival Spirit is an 88,500 gross ton ship and can carry over 2,100 passengers at double occupancy. The ship is sailing a 4-night Queensland cruise which departed its homeport at Sydney on August 14. Mooloolaba was the only scheduled port of call on the itinerary so guests no doubt will be disappointed.

Pacific Pearl which is operated by Carnival-owned P&O Australia will be the next ship to call at the destination on September 4.

We’ve contacted Carnival regarding the cancelled call and will update this post once we get a response.
