The mega-cruise ship 'Ovation of the Seas' has worked its way to its mooring in Port Chalmers this morning.

The biggest cruise ship was met by a pilot boat about 7:30am and passed through the heads of the harbour about 7:45am. 

The second attempt at the vessel’s inaugural Dunedin visit would be marked by a "plaque and key" ceremony, in which Port Otago and the ship’s captain would exchange plaques to mark the event, a spokeswoman confirmed.

The ship was supposed to originally visit Dunedin on December 22 last year but had to cancel the visit due to bad weather.
