Cruise Weekly - - News -

THE Pit­cairn Is­lands has an­nounced it will launch a new ship ser­vice in Mar next year, in­creas­ing cruise vis­i­tor ca­pac­ity to the British ter­ri­tory by 75%.

Un­der char­ter to the Pit­cairn Is­lands Gov­ern­ment, MV Bravo Sup­porter will be based in the lo­cal wa­ters to help un­der­take 21 sail­ings per year, a jump from the 12 pre­vi­ously of­fered.

“The new ser­vice brings a mod­ern ves­sel with six twin berth pas­sen­ger cabins com­plete with en-suites,” said Pit­cairn Travel Co­or­di­na­tor Heather Men­zies.

“To com­ple­ment the new ser­vice, we are launch­ing a range of new ini­tia­tives and these will be an­nounced over the com­ing weeks,” she added.

Ac­cess to Pit­cairn cruise ser­vices is pro­vided by a fourhour flight from the French Poly­ne­sian cap­i­tal of Papeete.
