Cruise Season Meet and Greet Service
Tens of thousands of holidaymakers will be welcomed to Sydney by a fleet of friendly volunteer ambassadors during Sydney's busiest ever cruise ship season between now and April 2013.
The City of Sydney's welcoming committee, organised in partnership with Destination NSW, includes volunteers who set the benchmark for greeting international tourists during the Sydney Olympics and Paralympics.
The ambassadors will provide expert advice about the city's highlights and ensure first impressions of Sydney are memorable for the cruise ship visitors who inject around $1.1 billion into the local economy.
Volunteers are trained by the City of Sydney, Destination NSW and the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority to provide tips to help cruise passengers explore the sights and secrets of Australia's most famous city.
