A ship carrying 57 tourists has docked at the port of Mombasa.

Kenya Ports Authority corporate communication manager Bernard Osero was at hand to receive the vessel after making its inaugural call at the Port of Lamu.

The MV SH Diana’s visit to Kenya follows the recent port call of the world’s largest floating library, the MV Logos Hope that spent 45 days in the country before continuing its journey.

“Something unique with the vessel we have received today, MV Diana is that it’s the first cruise vessel to call Lamu port after we started the operation of the facility”, said Osero.

 Further he said that the arrival of the cruise vessel reflects Kenya’s growing prominence as a tourist destination, offering travelers unique and enriching experiences.

“So far as a country we have started attracting cruise vessels, building confidence that Kenya is still a major destination for tourists” he added.

More tourists from the same vessel remained in Lamu.
