Fifty members of the Australian Girls Choir lined the foreshore of Sydney's Barangaroo Wharf 5 at 07.45 today to greet our magnificent Silver Spirit, visiting Australia's largest city for the very first time as part of her inaugural 119-day World Cruise.
The choir’s repertoire featured a selection of quintessentially Australian songs such as “I still call Australia Home” and “My Island Home”, to welcome Silver Spirit's guests.
The fire tug Shirley Smith provided a beautiful water display and escorted Silver Spirit to her berth at Barangaroo, as a line-up of Silversea’s signature butlers saluted the city from the bow of the ultra-luxury ship.
Silver Spirit will stay overnight in Sydney Harbour, allowing guests plenty of time to explore the city before departing for Brisbane and continuing on her global journey, which concludes in Southampton on 19 May.
We hope you enjoy having a look at these images of her arrival in Sydney this morning.
