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!
