Cruise ship numbers up in Auckland
The number of ships visiting Auckland will be up 20 percent on last year by the end of April - breaking another record for the tourism industry.

However, the Cruise Lines International Association said growth won't continue if Auckland doesn't change its rules to allow ships to dock for longer at its downtown wharf.
