City seeking Mandarin speaking volunteers

The City of Greater Geraldton is seeking Mandarin speaking members of the community to assist during the stopover of the Asian cruise ship Super Star Virgo on 28 November 2015.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor, Ian Carpenter, said the Super Star Virgo visit marks the first time an Asian cruise ship will visit Geraldton shores and the City is keen to make the time passengers spend in the region unforgettable.

“Geraldton is the first stop on the Australian leg of the Super Star Virgo’s 46 day Australasian tour and gives us the chance to show off our beautiful City region to a new tourism market,” he said.

“We already know that our volunteer Meet and Greeters are part of the reason why passengers enjoy visiting our City and we want to continue to provide this high level of service for Mandarin speaking passengers on the Super Star Virgo when they come ashore.

“To do so, the City is seeking Mandarin speaking volunteers to accompany our Meet and Greeters or be located at key tourist attractions to assist passengers with inquiries.”

If you speak Mandarin, or know someone who does, and would like to assist with the Super Star Virgo cruise ship visit please contact Han Jie Davis or Joanne Brown at the City of Greater Geraldton for more information on 9956 6600.
