Napier Port says this summer cruise season is expected to be its busiest ever.  

It's had 72 cruise visits this season, with another 17 bookings coming up in the months through to April.  

That translates to more than 130,000 visitors.  

CEO Todd Dawson says this year will be their record, which is very welcome after Covid-19 and Cyclone Gabrielle cutting the season short last year. 

He told Mike Hosking that the next couple of years are looking to be even bigger, which is really fantastic to see.
