Major upgrades at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal (OPT) have affected the embarkation and disembarkation process of cruises departing between 26 October and 11 November.
Four cruises have been affected – Celebrity Solstice [26 October]; Rhapsody of the Seas [28 October]; Celebrity Solstice [3 November]; and Celebrity Century [11 November].
Passengers booked to sail on the cruises will check-in at the White Bay Cruise Terminal via James Craig Road in Rozelle.
Once the process in complete, travellers will be transported to the cruise ship, which will be docked at the OPT.
Meanwhile, disembarkation will take place at the OPT, however, due to limited luggage facilities, Royal Caribbean will offer a self-assist disembarkation process where guests walk off the ship with their luggage.
The Port Authority of New South Wales commenced a $49.4 million upgrade to the terminal in May this year.
As part of renovations, the northern wharf will be extended by 60 metres to handle larger ships.
The terminal building will receive a mezzanine level, an entry foyer and a wraparound deck to make the boarding to disembarkation process easier.
The ports authority expects the northern wharf extension to be completed by later this month.
