    Yeh, there's another one in harbour at the same time - can't remember its name - something Greek I think - so they're making a special dispensation and opening the shops in Rundle Mall at 9 am on the Sunday so that all the cruise passengers can spend their tourist dollars! As if tourists come to South Australia to shop.....

     

    Anyway, will probably be a bit busy round the port I should think with two in harbour at the same time.

    Last year when the QM2 came in the city made about $500K in revenue.

     

    Very very pleased to hear Rundle Mall will be open on the Sunday early - now if we can only get them to open on public holidays!

    Sounds fun, hope he's not tempted to stow away in one of the lifeboats!

    That's such a great opportunity for him, particularly in his field. Helps him to know what he's selling.
