TOURISTS on a three-month tour of the world on board the MV Europa made a stop at Port Denarau on Saturday, marking its first-ever trip to the marina.

The cruise liner carrying about 380 passengers gave the marina a further boost in its business operations as the visitors made full use of the sales and restaurants on offer at Denarau Island.

The official agents of the ship, Williams and Gosling operations manager, Koroi Ceremalua, said the cruise liner was a regular visitor to Fiji waters.

"She's been in Fiji since Thursday, making its first stop in Suva then it went to Sawa-i-Lau in the Yasawas before stopping over at Denarau," he said.

"The ship is originally from the Bahamas, and it is on a three-month trip around the world. It carries mostly visitors from Europe especially from Germany."

Port Denarau Marina Limited business manager Cynthia Rasch, said the MV Europa was the sixth cruise liner to bring visitors to the marina.

She said they expected the number of cruise liners travelling into Port Denarau to double compared to last year's figures.
