Costa Concordia to be joined by liners in Tunisia?

Date Posted: 21 Aug 2006
Category:
Passengers looking to enjoy African cruise holidays may be pleased to hear that Tunisia is looking to expand and develop its coastline to increase the number of cruise liners that can use the country's ports.

The Costa Concordia has recently found a home on the north African shoreline and with 1,600 km of coast, the nation is now modernising its harbour installations and lengthening La Goulette's quays.

Tunisia's Minister of Transport Abderrahim Zouari has suggested that he thinks the new developments will allow the progress of cruise tourism in the country, according to Alarab Online.

It is hoped that the expanded quays and modernised coastline facilities will encourage more cruise lines and ships to use Tunisia as a stop on an African cruise and the new developments may even allow larger ships to use the country's ports.

La Goulette is expected to be joined by Rades as ports used for commercial enterprises, including cruise liner dockings.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
