MSC resumes cruises to The Goulette

TUNIS (TAP/ SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 2011) - MSC Company, specialised in organising cruises to marinas across the world, said it will resume its cruises to the Goulette marina starting from next July.


Mr. Neil Palomba, an MSC Company official, said the company will operate, from next July to late October, 4 cruises a week to the port of the Goulette.

He said, during a news conference held on Friday at the tourist village of the Goulette Port, that four ships with a capacity of 2,000 passengers each will operate the 4 cruises.


Returning security in the recent period and the will of customers and the company to visit Tunisia have encouraged MSC to resume its cruises to the port.


Mr. Sahbi Azouz, Chairman of the Communication and Co-operation Division at the Board of Merchant Navy and Ports (OMMP) told TAP that cruises to the marina of Goulette started late April 2011.


A German vessel and an American one had docked last April 30 in the port of Goulette with 2,000 passengers on board of each of them.


Mr. Azouz expects that international organisations specialised in cruises to Mediterranean marinas will resume their activities to Tunisian destinations after this MSC's return.
