Why tender to Yorky's Knob instead of Cairns town centre? There is nothing to do at Yorky's Knob. Terrible tender service.

Cairns was lovely. We hired a car and did some sight seeing. Works out cheaper and more fun provided you have done some homework before hand

Cairns is not a particularly attractive city, lots of backpackers and families. The attractions are obviously the reef and hinterland. No point in lingering in Cairns and again,gouged for shuttle bus.m

You cannot put "CAIRNS" as a port of call when you tender into "YORKEY'S KNOB" they are two different cities with a distance between them. The tendering into port was a horribly long 3 hour process.

Not make the passengers pay. Read Less

Not the ship's fault, but we could not get our helicopter ride to the Barrier Reef. (tto see it again). Walked around Cairns---not very interesting.

On the last day we dropped the suitcases at the airport locker and went back to town for a sumptuous lunch at the Ochre restaurant. Still an institution, as good as 20 years ago, great food with Australian native meats and vegetables. ... Read More
