Pilot warden Rudolph Cann boarded the cruise ship Norwegian Breakaway at first light this morning to bring her into Heritage Wharf in Dockyard

The luxury liner - the largest passenger ship to ever visit the Island - will bring insome 5,300 passengers and crew with her for her inaugural trip from New York.

Her arrival coincided with that of Celebrity Cruises' Summit, which carries 1,200 passengers and 1,000 crew.

Premier Craig Cannonier has urged everyone to work together to make the visitors feel welcome.

Despite that, residents interested in seeing the massive liner have been urged not to overwhelm Dockyard on its arrival.

Said a Government spokesman: "In light of public interest in the arrival of the Breakaway, we are advising the public that access to the North Arm (King and Heritage Wharfs) will be restricted to officials and public transportation vehicles and there will be limited parking available in the area. Members of the public are reminded that the vessel will be in Dockyard until Friday, and they are encouraged to take the opportunity to see the vessel after its initial arrival [today]."
