MSC Davao III (IMO 9243241) is joining the Capricorn Service. Looks like replacing MSC Vaiga III.

Looking at the photos on Marine Traffic she is an old ship.

An unusual visitor coming to Auckland is the Italian RO/RO vessel Grande Cotonou IMO 9672105 owned by Grimaldi Lines.   She is doing Jeddah - Melbourne - Auckland - Shanghai.

The barge Kapua is due at Northport tomorrow with its second load of logs that were loaded in Auckland. Must be more economical to go by sea than trucking them north to Northport for export.

This must be a new scheduled service, as a second vessel Grande Florida IMO 9782716 is also listed on the same port rotation. The first vessel is due Auckland 21 May and the second 11 June.

MSC look to have added two extra vessels transferring from the Panda schedule. The Hansa Europe IMO 9459412 is down as Kiwi voyage KE318. and AS California IMO 9342695 is down as Capricorn voyage FC318. Both of these voyages were originally "blank sailings".

Capitaine Baret has added an Auckland port call on the Fiji Express service.
Capitaine Magellan has added Nukualofa to her Samoas schedule, and Capitaine Kupe will drop the port and only call Papeete.

I suspect she will be the next one to be renamed. She appears to be out of action for two months at the completion of this voyage and is due back in NZ in October. My bet is that she will be renamed Maersk Rio something.

This appears to be a "Round the World Service". The Grande Florida is now due Auckland 11 July, in from Port Kembla and out to Nagoya.
The next two vessels are Grande Napoli IMO 9247924 due from Antwerpen 14 July and out to Nagoya, and Grande Baltimora IMO 9784037 due 31 July from Melbourne and out to Busan.
Some vessels are coming down via Suez and others via Panama, but I can't locate a shipping schedule online.
