Boholâ€™s tourist attractions continue to draw foreign nationals from across the globe including those travelling on luxury cruise ships that cross the high seas.
The M/S Hanseatic, an international cruise ship of Europe-based Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, made a port call in Tagbilaran City Tuesday bringing 160 European tourists and 120 crew members and service personnel.
James Gantalao, Philippine Ports Authority-Tagbilaran City manager, said that passengers will visit Boholâ€™s top tourist destinations including the Chocolate Hills and white sand beaches in Panglao.
The cruise ship had also brought them to other attractions in the country including Malapascua Island in Cebu before docking at the Tagbilaran City Tourism Port.
It will then head back to Europe after its one-day visit to Bohol, which is already being considered as among the top international cruise ship destinations in the country.
In the second week of November, another cruise ship, M/S Pacific Venus which will be carrying around 500 Japanese passengers, will dock at the city pier.
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is a subsidiary of Hapag Lloyd AG, the worldâ€™s fifth largest container carrier in terms of vessel capacity. (Rey Tutas)
