One thing we love about covering cruise ship port calls is the chance to step aboard them and taking a look at what’s inside where we couldn’t all go because this kind of travel is not, sadly, for everyone.
On March 20, the MS Insignia (by Oceania Cruises) made its maiden call to the port of Puerto Princesa on a bright and sunny day. The 180.45-meter Regatta class cruise ship was more than 30 minutes late in arriving because Captain Damir Kurilic said it was “very windy” on the way.
It’s the 10th cruise ship to be welcomed in the city this year out of 14 port calls.
And because Palawan News got the chance to join the City Tourism Office’s party (led by Ms. Aileen Cynthia Amurao) on an unguided tour up the ship, we want to pay that forward by sharing with you these 10 photos that will tell you why many people (like us) in the world want to make this kind of vacation their life goal.
