2 International cruise ships visiting Boracay this month

Two international cruise ships are scheduled to arrive in Boracay Island, Malay, Aklan this month. The cruise ships are bringing tourists to have a taste of Boracay. These two vessels are the 6th and 7th cruise ship arrivals in Boracay Island for 2016.

MS Seabourn Sojourn with 450 passengers and 350 crews will dock in Boracay on April 8 while MS Insignia will make its maiden call on April 18, the Department of Tourism (DOT) said.

DOT-6 Regional Director Helen Catalbas said Boracay Island is always prepared to accommodate cruise ships and their passengers. “We already have the list of cruise ship arrivals for 2016 up to 2018,” she said. At least 6 or more cruise ships are expected to arrive within the year.

Personnel augmentation, welcome streamers, welcome lei receptions, send-off rondalla music, brochures and plaque of recognition for maiden call are among the assistance provided by DOT-6.

“Through proper coordination and partnership with the local government units of Malay and Aklan, we ensure organized reception and guarantee the safety of the passengers as they leave their ship to experience the island even for a few hours,” she added.

“DOT Region 6 is looking for other possible tourist spots in Aklan to be included on the list of destinations cruise ship passengers would like to add on their shore excursions,” she said. Northern Iloilo and Guimaras are being eyed to be included as cruise ship destination in Western Visayas.
