Pitcairn Is boost
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.
