Darwin Ship Photos taken of cruise ships, bulk carriers, navy ships and assorted cargo ships sailing Darwin Harbour.
A bulk carrier takes liquefied
natural gas on a regular voyage to Japan.
The Saga Rose 24,474 tons is a classic cruising vessel with a royal blue hull, white upper works, a well balanced buff funnel and has a very pleasing well rounded profile.
She has plenty of open decks for sunbathing and lots of nooks and crannies for privacy. There is also a complete wrap around promenade deck for that early morning walk.
There has been a steady increase in cruise ships visiting Darwin since the last visit of the Saga Rose, however the Saga Rose was decommissioned in 2011.
Darwin is an active port with frequent visits by cruise ships, survey ships, the Australian Navy and the US Navy.
An ambitious development plan for the port which includes a major conference facility and upgraded facilities for cruise ships should see an increase in both the volume and value of commerce through the Darwin Port.
