MS Columbus 2, to arrive in Boracay on Sunday

The second cruise ship to visit the island of Boracay will be arriving on Sunday, 24th of February.

The MS Columbus 2 of the Hapag Lloyd Cruises will be docking between Boracay and Caticlan on Sunday around 12 noon.

It will be staying for 7 hours before moving on to their next destination.

According to Marce Bernabe, Technical Staff/Public Information officer of the Caticlan Jetty Port, they are expecting around 800 people to be boarding off the ship.

Of this number, 600 are tourists and the other 200 are the cruise line's staff.

Although negotiations between the port management and the shipping company - regarding the route and other details - had already occurred, as the day of arrival come nearer, more negotiations are expected to happen between the management and other relevant personalities to ensure the security of the tourists.

Meanwhile another two or more cruise ships are in line to visit the island this year.

In addition, a certain cruise liner has already expressed its intention to visit Boracay in 2014, and even in 2015, two more are coming said Bernabe.

The third luxury liner, MS Europa, also of the Hapag Lloyd Cruises, and is the second for this year, is set to arrive on March 19, 2013
