Suva full of visitors yesterday
Suva was full of visitors yesterday after the cruise liner, Diamond Princess, called into port. 800 passengers on the liner then disembarked to see the sights. The ship which has a capacity of 2,674 passengers stopped over in Suva for half a day on its cruise of the South Pacific enroute to Tahiti, Hawaii and Pago Pago in American Samoa. Many of the passengers aboard were retired couples in their 70s.
