Cruise ship cancellation not expected to be a big issue
The cancellation of a cruise ship carrying almost 2000 people is not expected to cause too much economic pain in Dunedin.
While New Zealand basks in perfect weather, the Pacific Pearl has cancelled a Friday visit after extreme weather off Sydney.
The Dunedin Visitor Centre says despite the loss of passengers to the Dunedin tourism market, other visits mean the loss is limited.
The Pacific Pearl was to have arrived on the same day as Celebrity Solstice, which carries close to 3000 passengers.
With the Solstice still coming, the visitor centre says tourism will still have a big day.
