Seychelles tourism ministry continues to develop personalized ties with visiting cruise ships

Seychelles tourism ministry continues to develop personalized ties with visiting cruise ships ( The Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, continues to discuss possibilities for the country to develop closer partnership with the luxury cruise liners, and last week he called on the Captain of Costa neoClassica as it docked in Port Victoria.

Minister St.Ange was speaking to the ship’s captain, Philippe Fichet Delavault, last week during a courtesy call while Costa neoClassica was in Port Victoria.

Costa neo Classica graced the waves of the Seychelles’ ocean and docked at Port Victoria, giving its passengers time to get a glimpse at the beauty of the islands.

With the aim of consolidating cruise tourism, Minister St.Ange said cruise liners are vital in the efforts of boosting its tourism industry.

Minister St.Ange was accompanied by the Principal Secretary for Tourism, Anne Lafortune, and that of the Culture Department, Benjamine Rose, and the Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board, Sherin Naiken.

They were all joined by the Deputy Chief Executive of the Seychelles Ports Authority, Garry Albert.

Captain Delavault spoke about the neo concept that Costa Cruises has launched, which responds to the request and specificities of the French market.

Steering away from the “big floating holiday village,” this new concept is more into boats of smaller capacity, longer cruises, and stops at ports which give the passengers more time for exploration and excursions.

The captain added that this concept enriches the passengers experience on board a Costa cruise liner, and strengthens bonds between destinations where the ships make port calls.

Minister St.Ange discussed ways to develop a Costa-Seychelles cooperation, and give the passengers a deeper taste of the Seychelles experience.

The possibilities of what Seychelles and the other Vanilla Islands members can offer as experience to the Costa Cruises passengers were much welcomed by the captain.

For fine-dining, brand boutiques, world-class service, and accommodation at sea, Costa neoClassica offers nothing but the best, and surely a vacation on board this cruise ship is one for the record books.

Entertainment aboard is on the itinerary every evening, in the theatre found on the ship. The casino and nightclub also provide perfect nights out at sea. Passengers aboard Costa neoClassica surely get value for their money with all the amenities aboard.

The restaurants on board boast impressive decors, each giving added comfort and creating the perfect atmosphere for dining.

A day at the spa is a great way to relieve stress, and Costa neoClassica offers just that. Another great way to unwind is at the wine bar.

The pool deck is where passengers can relax and have a cool drink while basking in the sun or enjoying a swim in the pool.

Shopping at sea is not impossible. Costa neoClassica caters to the lovers of brands in its boutiques.

At the end of the courtesy call, souvenirs were exchanged, as a way to remember this memorable moment on board this floating holiday resort.
