Int’l Cruise Visits Pangasinan’s Hundred Islands Anew

Some 201 passengers of the Star Legend cruise ship enjoyed the pristine white sand beach and scenery at the Hundred Islands National Park (HINP) here on Monday.

HINP cruise ship coordinator Rey Livara, in an interview on Tuesday, said this is the 2nd time the Star Legend cruise ship visited the famous park.

The tourists, who are mostly Americans and some Filipino and Japanese, toured at HINP’s Governor’s Island, Quezon Island and Pilgrimage Island, while they engaged in water sports activities such as kayaking.

They also tried the island’s zipline, snorkeling and indulged themselves to sunbathing and swimming, he said.

“The cruise ship came from Hong Kong and HINP is its first stop here in the Philippines. Then, it will go to Manila, Coron Palawan, Puerto Princesa, and Boracay before it proceeds to Singapore,” Livara said.

He added Star Legend will again visit HINP twice next year, while a new cruise ship will dock at the islands on February next year.

“I think the cruise ships love to visit HINP because of the beauty of the islands and its history as well as the hospitality of the people,” Livara said. (PNA)
