As agreed, the cruise season has started since the beginning of November. Two or three ships will touch some provinces of the big island, among others Toamasina, Majunga, Diégo, Nosy Be. The Anosy region, of which Taolagnaro is the capital, is one of the target places for these cruises.
On November 13th, the liner Europa II began its tour in Taolagnaro carrying Europeans on board, most of whom are of German origin.
The ship dropped off at the port of Ehoala. The locals welcomed these visitors with great fanfare, followed by some entertainment at City Hall. The 516 passengers enjoyed a few discovery walks, especially in the city center of Taolagnaro and Ampasinahampoana Park. They spent some time at the edge of the beautiful beaches of the locality and around the port.
Artisans and souvenir sellers were satisfied with the passage of these European tourists. The Malagasy know-how attracted them despite a rather average sale.
The Regional Directorate of Tourism wanted to raise awareness among all the actors and tourist operators responsible for hosting these visitors. Once the news has been confirmed, restorers, tour guides and even city taxis have been motivated to offer quality service. The Regional Directorate insisted on the respect of the cleanliness, particularly in the public transport, but also on the quality of reception in the restaurants.
This awareness has paid off. The operators offered the tourists services worthy of the professionals. The other two cruise ships scheduled to dock on November 24 and 25 will surely benefit from this same quality of service. The inhabitants of Taolagnaro look forward to them.
