Cruise ships visits bring 2,000 tourists to Nuku’alofa

The arrivals of two cruise ships, the Queen Elizabeth  from England and the Asuka II from Japan, in Nuku’alofa today have brought smiles to thousands of local tourist business operators and locals.

The tourists were welcomed at Tonga’s largest wharves, Vuna and Kuini Salote with dozens of Tongan group dances as well as hundreds who were in Nuku’alofa to watch the liners.

This was the first time the MS Asuka II visited Tonga after two agents from the Japanese liner company were in the kingdom in May last year to look at the wharf in preparation for the visit.

Both liners left Nuku’aofa this evening with MS Queen Elizabeth  heading to Auckland.
