March 13, 2015.Tagbilaran Seaport. Another cruise ship visited Bohol; the the MS L’ Austral , operated by Compagnie Du Ponant, carrying 264 passengers mostly French nationals and 150 crews. Dropping anchor of quite a distance from the city port, the tourists were ferried to the shore via water taxis. Graciously welcomed by the Boholanos, the tourist had their whole day activity seeing the countryside including Bohol’s world-famous Chocolate Hills and the Phili[[ine Tarsiers!
This is not the first time for Bohol to welcome cruise ships. MS L’ Austral was just one of the series! Hopefully, more to come and more cruise liners will include Bohol as one of its regular cruise ports!
