NZ Prime Minister has announced that all cruise ship visits to NZ have been banned until 30 June due to Covid-19. Those ships already on the coast will be allowed to finish their cruises and then leave. Auckland Ports cruise schedule had 35 arrivals due between 15 March aand 30 June. Cry

The Noordam left Auckland 4pm 12 March and arrived Tauranga am on 13th. She is sitting at bert 7, a log loading berth, and is down to return to Auckland on 19 March. Does she still have passengers on board? If so they may be keeping them on board to try and use up the food they loaded in Auckland. Smiley
Also just heard that Golden Princess is anchored in Akaroa and a passenger is being tested. No one is allowed off the ship.

Noordam is having a short lay up in Tauranga with crew only onboard. The original idea was for her to stay in Tauranga until she could fit into a new schedule but with this new cruise ban that happened I'm not sure what she'll do. I would imagine it very pleasant onboard there at the moment without all the passengers. Crew are allowed to go ashore whenever they want.

Azamara Journey that started her cruise in Auckland is in Dundin today. Rather than continuing to Sydney she is coming straight back to Auckland and disembarking passengers.
The Bremen is laying over at Princes Wharf for a few days.

There are four cruise ships in Auckland today, three have no passengers. Azamara Journey at Queens is disembarking all her guests that originally got on in Auckland, so no quarantine problems. The overseas guests will be bused to the airport for flights. Noordam is refuelling at Princes then out to anchor tonight. Bremen laid up at Princes until 21st then moves Wynyard for fuel and then to Queens until 25th and Silver Muse at anchor. Silver Muse comes back in tonight and sails on Sunday 22nd. The Le la Perouse is due at anchor tomorrow and will berth for fuel and supplies 23rd and sail 24th.

OOCL has announced on their website that they are enhancing the China New Zealand Service, with the fastest transit times for shipments to Wellington from NE Asia. They say the Wellington call will replace Port Chalmers in order to match changes in market demand in the New Zealand trade.  I'm curious what those market changes could be. 

The changes will be effective with APL Denver's arrival in Shanghai in mid May.

Due to Covid-19 there are many changes on the Pacific Islands service:
Capitaine Wallis is replacing Southern Pearl on Suva to Wallis and Futuna.
Southern Pearl is replacing Southern Trader on Auckland to Tahiti.
Southern Trader is replacing Southern Lily on Auckland to Pacific Islands.
I presume Southern Lily will go back to her owners.

Capitaine Dampier will now call Tauranga-Auckland-Fiji-Vila-Santo.
Capitaine Tasman will now call Tauranga-Auckland-Noumea-Fiji.

CMA CGM Rossini (IMO 9280639) is to replace ANL Wendouree on the KIX Service. However the schedule on the ANL website shows an unidentified vessel with the name ANL Australia slotted in for the next voyage.

The CMA CGM Rossini is usually on the AAX2 schedule. She appears to be transferring to KIX for only one voyage starting Pt Kelang 14 May and finishing Brisbane 12 June. She will then revert to the AAX2. Then the ANL Australia will come into the KIX schedule.

Swire shipping have taken over the charter of Matson's Olomana. She is to be redeployed on their Trans Tasman schedule replacing the Kokopo Chief. Melanesian Chief is on her final Trans Tasman voyage but a replacement vessel is yet to be announced.

From Kwangsi V2010S due Auckland 23 June, Swire have dropped calls into Marsden Point and Tauranga on their South East Asia schedule. Auckland will be the only port of call.

It's amazing that Swire are replacing a vessel that is 10,352 GRT and 158M length, with a vessel that is 5025GRT and 116M length. There must be a downturn in Transtasman cargo.

It may also be a loss of business. Calls on this service to Napier stopped 3 years ago because the contract for the base cargo was awarded to another shipping line.
