Hi Roger,

The 1989 Easter Cruise on FAIRSTAR was a 10-night cruise which left Sydney 23rd March, 1989. After transiting the Boulari-Havannah Passage (26/03), she called at Vila (27/03), Mystery Island (28/03), Isle of Pines (29/03) and Noumea (29-30/03), return to Sydney was 2nd April. You will note that she over-knighted in Noumea, arriving at 10.00pm after a 4.00pm departure the same day from Isle of Pines.

This link probably won't help with Princess that much, but you might find it interesting...

Keep in mind that Sitmar had a newbuild (the Fairstar) in progress in 1988 when they were sold to Princess. The Fairstar never sailed under that name being renamed the Star Princess by Princess.

Actually, the 'Newbuild' was Sitmar FairMajesty which ultimately became Star Princess and prior to recently becoming the Columbus of CMV, she was Pacific Pearl in the Australian market.

Fairstar did indeed serve the Sitmar brand, she first arrived in Australia as a migrant ship in the 1960's before becoming a full time cruise ship in 1972. She was based in Sydney for all of her cruising career and became something of an icon until being despatched to the breakers in 1997.

Cheers,
