Celebration of Oosterdam’s Arrival at Australia

On Tuesday, October 23, Oosterdam docked at Sydney, Australia, for the first time ever! The ship kicked off its sailing season down under at the Port of Sydney for a series of 10- to 28- day voyages to New Zealand and the South Pacific. A special plaque exchange ceremony was held to commemorate the ship’s inaugural visit. Enjoy these photos from the event!

    My younger brother and I are Indonesians. He’s been working for this Cruise for a few years. After haven’t seen him for about 3years, oh boy, it’s great to know that his cruise stops by here in Sydney where I live now. I’m looking very much forward to see him. Miss you, bro! :)
