Timetable of the Fanning Island (Lines Islands, Kiribati) Ferry Terminal
The Fanning Island (Tabuaeran) is one of the many picturesque islands of Kiribati's line. It has a surface area of 34 square kilometres (13 ml2) and a resident area of about 2,000. Its highest point is 3 meters (10 feet) above the surface (flood). The island of Tabuaeran was deserted when the Europeans found it.
In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the island was a co-producer. Paelau is the administration center of the island's capital city. It is situated on the west shore of the island and just a few miles southwards of a canal. The number of jobs was diminished by the loss of NCL Norwegian Cruise Line on the island and the reduction in the operation of the company as well.
The Fanning Island was a one-week call for NCL, which had cruisers in Honolulu Hawaii. US state law stipulated that expatriate vessels had to call at a seaport abroad. That was the main reasons why vessels went to Tabuaeran, as this island target was cheaper (for visits to a strange country) than the harbour dues resulting from the US Passenger Vessel Services Act.
MS Norwegian Wind retired from the NCL group in 2007. Later NCL launched 3 cruisers specifically designed for Hawaii, USA. The Holland America boats ms Rotterdam (2010), ms Westerdam (2011), ms Volendam (2011) have been visiting Fanning Island on a regular basis. Cruisers to Fanning Island Bay at Napari (Napali) - a village at the north end of Tabuaeran Atolls, Kiribati.
