The first international cruise ship docked at the world-famous Boracay Island (Malay town, Aklan province) since the COVID crisis began in 2020.

Seabourn Encore arrived on Monday, February 13th, from Singapore with ~600 passengers and ~500 crew.

The provincial government, the local government of Malay, and the DOT-Department of Tourism welcomed the tourists.

The last time an international ship arrived in Boracay was back in 2019.

Seabourn Ovation was scheduled to arrive on the island in February 2020 but canceled her call after passing by Hong Kong which registered positive COVID cases.
