Positive feedback continues to flow in from cruise passengers, who have visited the City of Greater Geraldton in recent weeks.
On Thursday, Geraldton welcomed 1648 Sea Princess passengers to shore, which was 84 per cent of the passengers on board.
Radiance of the Seas passengers were also keen to discover the city on Saturday, October 27, with 89 per cent choosing to spend the day in the Geraldton area.
Jim and Elvie Mitchell of Gympie, Queensland were so enthused from their visit aboard Radiance of the Seas, they emailed the Geraldton Visitor Centre with their feedback.
“We wish to put on the record how we appreciated the welcome and farewell afforded by the very professional representatives of your City and to make the observation that the interface was the best that we had experienced in six shore excursions between Sydney and Fremantle,” Mr Mitchell said.
He went on to say the Geraldton experience and their visit to Fremantle and Cape Leeuwin had encouraged them to try to return to WA.
City of Greater Geraldton customer service manager Jenny Rolston said they had received similar feedback from those aboard the Sea Princess.
She said other feedback received from Radiance of the Seas passengers commended the City on its cleanliness, easy layout, beautiful foreshore, good shopping and friendly feel.
Passengers were welcomed to shore by Meet and Greet volunteers, local musicians and a group of Year 8 Aboriginal students from John Willcock College, who performed a welcome dance under the tutorship of Charles Mallard.
About 200 Sea Princess passengers and 300 Radiance of the Seas passengers participated in organised tours while the remainder enjoyed independent activities around the city.
