Guam - The island got a boost in tourism for the day with the arrival of the Sun Princess cruise ship. More than 2,500 passengers and crew members pulled into port this morning after touring the waters of Australia, New Zealand and Asia. The liner has been dubbed a "big ship choice with a small ship feel". 

Passengers and crew members were greeted by Miss Earth Guam contestants and cultural dancers before taking various tours around the island. Crewmember Glenn Ost said when asked what he was looking forward to doing while here for the day, "To be honest, just the beach and shopping - the beaches!"  And colleague Leticia Joshua added about her favorite part of coming to Guam, duty free shopping!"

The vessel is scheduled to leave this evening en route to Papua New Guinea. It's the 5th vessel from the Pacific Princess Cruises fleet to make a port call to Guam. The Sun Princess is expected to return to the island again in October.
