Dar es Salaam Tourism is getting a boost following another luxury cruise ship which docked in Dar es Salaam Port on Monday December 21, 2015 with more than 450 tourists and crew. MS Nautica, which is operated by Oceania Cruises, docked at Dar es Salaam Port at 09h30. The vacationers were from different countries including South Africa, the United States, Germany, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
At the Port, the tourists were welcomed by the energetic traditional snake dance, which was really exiting. While some tourists travelled to Bagamoyo to visit historical sites, others enjoyed a tour of Dar es salaam City including the National Museum, Tinga Tinga Arts, The Slip Way Craft Market and Mwenge Craft Market.
The cruise Ship will also dock in Zanzibar on Tuesday December 22, 2015 and provide opportunity for tourists to visit various attractions including the beautifully preserved old Stone Town which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, historical monuments such as the Arab Fort and the House of Wonders.
Tourists will also be having opportunity to hang around the markets in the Stone Town, shop for the exquisite handicraft items and artifacts made by the local people, as well as taking time for spice tour.
Tanzania is expected to receive another cruise Ship on December 31, 2015 and January 1, 2016 respectively with approximately 1000 tourists.
