According to AAP, Brisbane’s new cruise ship terminal has been plagued by problems on its opening day.
The $750 million Portside Wharf and Brisbane Cruise Terminal development on the Brisbane River at Hamilton welcomed its first vessel today
– P&O's Pacific Star.
The ship had been due to sail at 2pm but when passengers eventually boarded, the delay continued due to a problem with the vessel's holding tank.
P&O spokesman John Richardson said the Pacific Star could not leave until a minor leak was fixed.
Another 48 liners are due to berth at the terminal in the next 12 months – four times the number that visited Brisbane in 2003 when work on the development started.
