As a Tourism Consultant, and the former Minister responsible for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine, Alain St. Ange has always promoted Seychelles as a cruise ship destination and defended cruise ship business. He continues to do that even today.

 

Seychelles is entirely dependent on tourism, tourism has become a key pillar of its economy, and now it needs to appreciate the importance of cruise ship tourism. It is extremely important for Seychelles to embrace cruise ship business and to get ready for increased cruise ship numbers.

 

Dubai-owned port operator DP World welcomed five giant international cruise liners carrying over 23,000 tourists at its Hamdan Bin Mohamed Cruise Terminal 3, thus announcing the commencing of a cruise tourist season with the entry of vessels Aida Prima (with 6700 visitors), MSC Splendida (7,918), MscLirica (3,860), Costa Mediterranea (5,550) and Horizon with 3700 visitors.
