Three times a week the “Princess of Tasmania” leaves Melbourne for Devonport. Carrying up to 100 cars and 300 passengers, the ship’s crew deal efficiently and cheerfully with both people and vehicles. We see the passengers and transports loaded, overnight accommodation, and the offloading in the morning.
