Tonga prepares for more cruise liners


Tonga’s tourism and transport industry not only got its first taste of what a cruise luxury liner can bring to its shores but more importantly how to reap the benefits from the thousands of tourists disembarking on the kingdom.

When cruise boat Sea Princess, bringing with it 1950 passengers from Australia, berthed at the newly upgraded Vuna Wharf in Tonga’s capital Nuku’alofa last month, the industry was focused on ensuring the visit was memorable for the visitors and worthwhile for the hosts.
