The Wallem Philippines met with the members of Malay and Boracay PNP, the Philippine Coastguard, and other sea patrols as preparation for the arrival of another cruise ship tomorrow.
Representatives from the shipping company itself have oriented the group on how to beef up the security.
Boracay PNP Chief PS/Insp. Joeffer Cabural said that they will be dispatching 116 police personnel in areas in the island where the cruisers will be going to.
The Coast Guard, on the other hand, will deploy 20 of its members to keep an eye on guests who will be joining the Island hopping.
The sea patrols, meanwhile, will be in charge in securing the cruise ship’s perimeter as well as the safety of its passengers.
The force will also include the Malay Auxiliary Police who will take control over the flow of the traffic, and to give way to the visitors to avoid delays.
The MS Superstar Gemini is expected to arrive at 5am and will be returning back to Manila to continue travelling to China at 6pm.
It carries with it around 1,271 passengers and 973 crew members.
