[See current cruise ship schedule.]

ANGWIN (Napa County) Calif., June 9, 2000—A listing of cruise ships scheduled to visit the Pitcairn Islands through the remainder of 2000 and in 2001 has been released to the Pitcairn Islands Study Center on the campus of Pacific Union College here from the Pitcairn Islands Administration office in Auckland, New Zealand.

The date of their Pitcairn calls, the cruise ship's name, number of passengers they carry, the last port of call before calling at Pitcairn, andthe next port of call after leaving Pitcairn include:

    August 19     -   MV Deutschland:, 636 passengers, Chile, Mangareva.
    September 1  -   Seabourne Sun.
    November 2  -   MS Hanseatic, 188 passengers, Mangareva, Easter Island.

This ship is scheduled to visit Pitcairn on November 2, Henderson Island, November 3, and Ducie Island, November 4.

    November 16  -   World Discoverer, 138 passengers, Mangareva, Easter Island.

This ship was scheduled to visit Henderson and Ducie in addition to Pitcairn on November 16-18. However, latest word is that the ship was beached in the Solomon Islands. Society Expeditions report that this ship is still beached and they are negotiating to purchase another ship. "It does mean, however, that they are unlikely to be on Pitcairn in November, but they hope to return in April next year," reports Pitcairn Commissioner Leon Salt.

Year 2001:

    February 1    -   MV Europa, 408 passengers.
    February 11  -   Saga Rose, 580 passengers.
    February 18  -   Maxim Gorki, Easter Island, Moorea.
    November 1  -   MV Bremen, 164 passengers.

This ship is scheduled to visit Pitcairn on November 1, Henderson, November 2, and Ducie, November 3.
