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.
