Carrying more than 2,000 foreign visitors and crew members on board, Italian cruise ship AIDAbella was greeted upon arrival at Duong Dong port in Phu Quoc district in the southern province of Kien Giang on November 22, according to local authorities.
The tourists, mainly from Germany paid a visit to an array of popular attractions across Phu Quoc throughout the day.
The AIDAbella cruise ship is an exceptionally large vessel, measuring 251.89 metres in length, 32.2 metres in width, and 45.02 metres in height.
Due to the ship’s large size, the vessel was forced to dock roughly 1 km from shore while several smaller boats, which are able to accommodate a maximum of 90 passengers, were arranged to transport the passengers onto the island.
Following their visit, the group returned to the cruise ship and departed Phu Quoc at 19:00 on the same day. VOV
