Delay in departure

THE cruise liner Rhapsody of the Seas arrived at the Kings Wharf yesterday as rain battered Suva's stormy seas.

For many passengers on board, it was their first trip to Fiji.

"It's really nice so far, the people are really friendly and everyone wants to help" said Matthew Snell of Newcastle, Australia.

As the passengers explored the streets of Suva, many took the opportunity to purchase souvenirs and gifts for relatives.

But for some the day was marred by the news of Tropical Cyclone Lusi.

The passengers spoke of their concerns about the impact the weather would have on their planned trip around the islands.

"We're here for three more hours than we thought, while the ship works out where we're going next," one passenger said.
