Two cruise ships visit Hambantota International Port

two cruise ships, MS Europa 2 And MS Azamara Quest visited the Hambantota International Port (HIP) on Tuesday (9th). More than 900 passengers disembarked to visit popular southern tourist destinations. Sights included Yala National Park, Udawalawe National Park, Bundala National Park, Kataragama Devalaya and Mulkirigala Temple. Visitors also had the opportunity to tour Hambantota City and visit the Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa in Shangri-La.

“We are delighted to welcome these two cruise ships back with us. Azamara Quest visited us in December last year and Europa 2 called at port in 2019. We are excited to be entering the cruise ship circuit and this would mean more ships calling at Hambantota International Port this year. Passenger and crew facilities have been upgraded to include duty-free shopping on the docks. Located in a lush green setting, Hambantota International Port is recognized as one of the cleanest ports in the world,” said Tissa Wickramasinghe, COO, Hambantota International Port Group (HIPG).
