History twice made on Pitcairn

History was twice made on Pitcairn today when  for the first time two cruise ships arrived on the same day; and

not just one but  both ships ferried their passengers ashore in the ships own tenders.

It's not often passengers get to make it ashore and when they do its usually in the ships own rubber inflatables or zodiacs or the Pitcairn longboats.

 
Today, both ships arrived just hours apart with the Saga Rose arriving first followed by the Princess Danae. Both ships had just under 500 passengers and as it turned out the Saga Rose had only planned to stay for half a day while the Princess Danae stayed for the remaining part of the day.
