The first cruise ship has arrived in Tauranga.

Sun Princess docked in at the Tauranga Port at about 7.15am this morning.

A reporter at the scene said the area was buzzing with people and tour groups.

There are 83 cruise ship visits scheduled this summer.

While there will be more visits than last season, overall passenger numbers look set to be down with 153,000 expected this season compared to 164,300 last.
