Business and Tourism Minister Vijay Daryanani on Wednesday welcomed the MS Borealis cruise ship on its inaugural visit to Gibraltar. MS Borealis has been Sailing for Fred Olsen Cruise Lines since July 2021, which is a UK-based, Norwegian-owned cruise shipping line with four cruise ships.
The vessel holds 702 cabins, with a standard capacity of 1,360 passengers and 662 crew.
MS Borealis arrived at the Gibraltar Port in the morning and departed at 2000hrs.
Minister Daryanani and Captain Rommel Pineda engaged in the traditional exchange of plaques at the Gibraltar cruise terminal.
Vijay Daryanani MP said “I am very pleased to welcome MS Borealis to Gibraltar for the first time. It is great to see the cruising industry start up again after the manner in which it has suffered so much over the last nineteen months. Gibraltar has missed these cruise calls immensely. I hope this is the first visit of many for this vessel and cruise ships in general”.
