The Seabourn Seajourn, an ultra-luxury cruise vessel has visited Ghana for the first time since 2020 when COVID-19 broke out.
Indeed, the vessel is the sixth (6) vessel to visit Ghana’s ports under three months, and the third to call the Port of Tema within the said period.
The 198-meter-long and 25-meter-wide vessel, operated by Seabourn Cruise Line and sailing under the flag of Bahamas, brought 330 tourists to Ghana as part of a cruise expedition across the Atlantic.
The Operations Manager at Inchcape Shipping Services, the ship agency responsible for the ship’s call to Ghana, Benjamin Quansah, revealed that Cruise Lines are always happy to come to the Port of Tema due to the security and procedures at the port.
The Chief Executive Officer of touring agency, Landtours Ghana, Mawuli Dzebu said the tourists enjoy Ghana and the country must look to expand its tourism potentials. He revealed that many cruise vessels should be expected in coming months, due to the end of COVID-19 pandemic which slowed down the global cruise industry.
The vessel is expected to continue its voyage to selected ports in the West Africa sub region on its expedition. It has visited Togo, Benin, The Gambia among other African countries in the past few weeks.
