One of my big concerns about Queens Wharf being a cruise ship terminal is that we often hand over lots of public space for “the privilege” of cruise ships stopping in the city. I don’t know what it was like earlier in the day when the ship arrived but I was pleased to see the wharf almost completely open to the public when this ship was in town the other day (there’s another one in today)
I also see the end of the wharf is getting more popular. On a beautiful day its a great place to sit and and watch the harbour.
Perhaps Waterfront Auckland should let someone open a café at the end of the Cloud. Could be quite popular during summer.
