The cruise ship The World visited NI today. The World is a private cruise ship with a difference – it is a residential community owned by its residents. The community live on-board as the ship travels the globe. The passengers arrived early today, and were all on-island by 9am. Some went on tours, others hired a car for the day. Here are some photos from this short Norfolk Island holiday.
