Namport clinch deal to have cruise liners spend more days at Walvis Bay to boost tourism

Breadcrumb

Namport has clinched a deal that will see six passenger cruise liners spend more days at Walvis Bay in October to boost tourism.

Normally, these cruise liners dock at the harbour for less than a day, spending less money on the local economy.

The Erongo Tourism Forum is making deliberate efforts to boost passenger cruise liner tourism.

In the past, Namport targeted 25 passenger cruise liners to dock at the harbour annually.

This number has, however, increased since the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the industry.
