SBMA chief confident Subic Bay may be next cruise ship destination
Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) chair Wilma Eisma is positive that Subic Bay can become the next “cruise ship playground” in Asia.
On Saturday, Eisma announced that 15 cruise ships are set to dock at the Subic Freeport zone in 2018.
The Subic Bay community also welcomed the first cruise ship to arrive, Italian-flagged Costa Atlantica, on Saturday. The ship carries more than 2,000 passengers.
“Subic’s time to become the next cruise ship playground of Asia has already begun,” Eisma said in a statement. “We are very excited. I hope that this will spark our dream of making Subic a part of the inter-island itinerary of international cruise ships.”
“Costa Atlantica’s visit is just the first of some 15 cruise ship visits expected in this Freeport for the year,” the SBMA chief added.
Eisma said that Subic Bay is also poised to offer “the best tourism facilities and services for tourists from the arriving ships, with memorable and tailored-tourism experiences to meet the expectation of visitors.”
