THE Northern town of Labasa is expected to welcome about 90 tourists on board the cruise ship Reef Endeavour tomorrow (Friday).

Labasa Tourism Association chairman Paul Jaduram said the tourists would disembark at the Malau Jetty.

"We are expecting about 90 tourists from around the globe to visit Labasa tomorrow," he said.

"They won't be staying here for long as they will be heading back to their next destination at 12 noon.

"They will just be visiting some sites before they head back.

"The cultural centre here won't be performing for the tourists because most of the members are students who will be attending school."

Mr Jaduram said they had bigger plans to benefit the association.

"We have eyed other historic sites and places for our tourists and we are working on some long-term projects.

"This is the second ship arriving on our shores this year."
