Best of the Week
23 September 2014
The Whitsundays just keeps putting on a show! This week we were blessed with stronger winds, which made for some fabulous sailing. The turtles are still about in droves, and we’ve had some great, fun groups on board, including a private charter for a local gal’s 40th birthday and a full compliment of cruise ship passengers.

Passenger log and special events
Local Family celebrate on Derwent Hunter
Saturday 20th it was time for the locals to hit the water, with a group of family and friends joining together to celebrate Lanie’s 40th birthday. It was a picture postcard day and Langford Reef was just magic. There was live music whilst chilling out under sail, and the kids had fun as pirates for the day.
Round the world sailors join the ship for the day
On Sunday 21st we welcomed aboard Mr & Mrs Roberts, who are sailing around the world on their own yacht. Having come half way around the world to get here, they unfortunately had to pull in to Mackay for boat repairs, so made the special trip with Derwent Hunter to make sure that they didn’t miss out seeing our wonderful backyard. I guess even when you are sailing around the world, it’s not every day you get chance to sail on an Australian legend.
Pacific Dawn guests jump aboard
37 Guests from Pacific Dawn joined the ship on Monday ranging in ages from 5 to 75, a good steady breeze of 15-20knts was a recipe for some great sailing. Cruise ship guests are able to book direct through the cruise liner, which includes transfers from the cruise ship to Airlie Beach for the departure.
Jade Mullins – aka “the most important person on the ship”
She is never seen without a smile on her face and when she’s not busy in the galley she is always hanging out with guests sharing stories.
Jade is a proud Queenslander, and has lived in the Whitsundays for the last 3 years, working in hospitality which is her passion.
Jade’s favourite part of the job?
“Hanging out with the kids and seeing their excited faces when they return from snorkelling.”
