Logos Hope returns to Ras Al Khaimah

Ras Al Khaimah, UAE: Logos Hope returns to Ras Al Khaimah after ten years, ready to connect and partner with the local people.

In celebration of Logos Hope opening to the public in Ras Al Khaimah, an official reception was held for distinguished guests. The event included Logos Hope’s parade of nations and the Korean Fan Dance, which was traditionally performed for royal audiences.

During his speech, Captain Ed Verbeek (Netherlands) said, “The ship and I have something in common. We both started our careers in 1973. Logos Hope has already visited Ras Al Khaimah once, but this is my first time. I’ve learnt that this is one of the few places in the world where people have continued to live for 7,000 years, so I look forward to getting to know Ras Al Khaimah better. My wife and I enjoy being on board because of the ship’s special community from 70 different nationalities. Here in the United Arab Emirates there are also many different nationalities, so I’m sure you appreciate that we can learn from each other as we work closely together.”

Managing Director Edward David (Malaysia) added, “This is our second visit to Ras Al Khaimah. We were last here in 2013. Logos Hope has seen more than 9.5 million visitors was up her gangways across 221 different ports around the globe. But it is always exciting to arrive in a place we’ve been before, so thank you to those who welcomed us and made it possible for us to be here. We are pleased to visit your city again. We trust that the Visitor Experience Deck will be a blessing to the people of Ras Al Khaimah and the rest of the United Arab Emirates.”

The cruise consultant of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, Mr. Jasem Ceitun, responded, “I would like to welcome you once again to Ras Al Khaimah. Thank you for coming again to our emirate. I’m sure you’ve seen many changes in this part of the world since 2013. But in Ras Al Khaimah, there has been a lot of continuity over the last 7,000 years and the most important thing we continue to preserve is our nature: our seas, our deserts, but most of all culture. We look forward to welcoming everyone from the United Arab Emirates to visit Logos Hope and continue contributing to your message of hope.”

Logos Hope will be open to the public in Ras Al Khaimah until the 16th of April before sailing on to Dubai.
