The Port of Townsville is set to be busy in 2018, with it's bumper cruise ship season having just kicked off.
On Friday it was an awesome spectacle to see a big beauty docked in Townsville.
Seven Seas Voyager was the first of 19 cruise ships for 2018 that will pull into Port of Townsville.
The 650 passengers were greeted with humid North Queensland conditions, but we don't doubt that they enjoyed their time in our paradise.
The second cruise ship, Artania arrived on Saturday with 1025 passengers, and 530 crew stepping off to enjoy our city.
