According to Angop, the docking of the cruise ship 'Artania' will take place on Friday while that of the cruise ship 'MS Zandam' will take place on Saturday. The vessels come from South Africa.
During their visit to Angolan soil, tourists are expected to visit, for a few hours, some of the capital's landmarks, namely the Iron Palace, the Museums of Anthropology and Armed Forces, Currency, Mausoleum Dr. Agostinho Neto, Handicraft Market and Miradouro da Lua, writes to Angop.
Speaking at the concertation meeting between the Multisectoral Commission for the reception of American tourists, Afonso Vita said that everything was ready for the purpose, reaffirming that the arrival of this type of ships in Angola is a sign that the country is on the path of ships, facilitating the awakening of the interest of foreign tourists.
Thus, quoted by Angop, he said that it was essential to improve and create infrastructure capable of meeting the demand of tourists interested in getting to know Angola, mentioning, as an example, the improvement carried out in the Miradouro da Lua.
On his turn, José Cabral, director general of the tourism company Travelgest, also quoted by Angop, made it known that until next month there are already conjectured five more vessels, which will dock on the 21st of March and 20th of April.
"The more ships that come, the more conditions we will have to receive them and the more tourists will continue to spend and improve conditions", said the official, quoted by Angop.
According to Angop, with these ships, there are a total of 41 boats stopping in the country since October 2012, as part of the promotion of tourism in the country.
