MS Columbus docked at the newly built Vuna wharf on 28th and MS Europa on 29th. MS Columbus arrived Nukualofa from Aitutaki, Cook Island and she left Nukualofa on 28th evening to Lautoka Fiji.  MS Europa first came to Neiafu and from there to Nukualofa and today 6:00 pm she will leave to Suva, Fiji.

There were stalls raised at the wharf where our local people could sell our local products and handicrafts. The arrival of these cruise ships has given a boost to our tourism industry.
