Kingfisher works to cope with hundreds of cruise passengers

KINGFISHER Bay Resort will work to accommodate the influx of 1400 people arriving on Fraser Island from P&O's cruise ships.

Kingfisher Bay Resort group manager David Hay said the resort would be able to cope with the extra capacity.

"The number of guests taking part in each activity will vary, but we will ensure we have capabilities available to ensure all passengers who choose to visit Fraser Island enjoy a fantastic experience," he said.

"Tour options and activities will be pre-booked by visitors on the incoming cruise ships to ensure we are able to accommodate all passengers that wish to explore Fraser Island.

"Passengers will return to the ship each evening so there are no additional capacity requirements or plans to expand the resort to cater for these guests."

This week the Chronicle revealed P&O Cruises would bring the Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden to the Fraser Coast in April and December 2016.

"We welcome the opportunity to promote and showcase Fraser Island and we look forward to working with P&O Cruises to ensure all passengers enjoy their experience on the Fraser Coast," Mr Hay said.
