The Seven Seas Navigator, a vessel of Miami-based Regent Seven Seas Cruises, docked at Boracay last week, where around 200 of its total 450 passengers disembarked and toured the island.
The stop was part of the cruise line’s “Exotic Ancient Seas” voyage, which travels from Sydney to Singapore. Prior to Boracay, the ship stopped in Puerto Princesa; afterwards, it proceeded to Manila.
While docked at the popular resort destination, Department of Tourism-Region VI (DOT-6) officials, including Boracay field officer-in-charge Kristoffer Leo Velete and Senior Tourism Operations Officer Marc Maio Judicpa, along with personnel from the Philippine Ports Authority, Cagban Jetty Port, and Malay Tourism Office, toured the cruise ship.
The MV Star Legend, a vessel operated by Windstar Cruises, previously docked at Boracay.
The ship brought an estimated 208 passengers, who spent around seven hours at the tourist hotspot taking in various sites including White Beach, D’Mall, and Puka Beach./WDJ
