Sulivan Shipping opens Falklands' 2016/17 cruise seasonStaff Writer | October 21, 2016
Approximately 63,000 cruise ship passengers arrivals are expected in the Falkland Islands this season.
Tourism Slightly up on the previous season
Staff at Sulivan Shipping are looking forward to the start of the 2016-2017 tourism season, with the arrival of the first cruise ship passengers on next Saturday’s flight, to board the M/V Sea Spirit.
Sulivan Shipping is also ready to welcome the new addition of the MS Midnatsol (Hurtigruten) to the schedule, not only visiting Stanley but the outer Islands also.
This season will also see the return of regular cruise ships to the Islands including the Le Boreal which has undergone repair and refurbishment after last year’s onboard fire in the north of Falklands waters. ■
