Default Pacific Sun in Cairns today 3 May



Best shot we can get from Cairns Live cam now.
The cam used to show the whole of Trinity Wharf .
Still I guess this shot is better than nothing.
Looks like great weather up there today.

David, after much searching, I think it's the Octopus,

Not sure if this is the same one (half-way down the page)

Not a bad day in Cairns today, a few dark clouds around but no showers so far. Cruise is going well, weather haas been kind to us, was a little choppy the first night, but from then on it's been smooth sailing.
No complaints at all with the trip, the only thing I would say are the shows do not seem to be as good as previous cruises, just havn't got that pizzaz, but there is plenty of other stuff to do.
Time to go study one of the three cocktail lists...
Cheers Val

Totally agree with Val.....we got off on 29th April our cruise the entertainment both guest artist and crew were dismal.....but on a good note the food had improved 110% .....we said our goodbyes to the little ship she is looking tired now but is still one of the friendliest we have cruised on
