Cruise ship MS Hanseatic
berths at the oil jetty in Otago Harbour, while the Port
Chalmers pleasure craft Vivienne J passes by
Port Otago commercial manager Peter Brown said MS
Hanseatic was ''bunkering'' or refuelling at the oil
jetty after passengers were dropped off earlier in the day.
The ship carried 184 passengers and 125 crew and stopped in
Dunedin during a cruise from Bluff to Auckland.
Mr Brown said it was becoming more common for smaller cruise
ships to bunker in Dunedin.
The ship left about 2.30pm yesterday.
