Muscat - 

MV Logos Hope will arrive at Port Sultan Qaboos on October 1 this year. 

The ship will be open to the public from October 2-7 from 2pm to 10pm.

During its visit to the sultanate this time, Logos Hope will partner with I-Care in its initiative to distribute 11,000 water bottles to construction workers in Muscat.

Logos Hope will also be hosting the largest floating book fair which will have on offer 5,000 titles on sale at affordable prices.

The collection will include children's titles, dictionaries, atlases and books in Malayalam, Arabic and Tagalog in addition to English.

On October 6, from 10am to 1pm, the fair will be open only for women.

The main aim of this is to help the ship’s women crew members bond with the visitors.

Esther Ryser, project coordinator of Logos Hope, said, “We will invite schools and universities to visit the ship. There will be a special show for kids. We look forward to interacting with people of Oman.”

Madeleine Paulsson, project manager of Logos Hope, said, “This year we will have the 43 millionth visitor on board, and it is expected to happen in October in Muscat. We shall wait and see who the lucky person is and he shall be in for a surprise.”

Tickets to the ship cost 300bz.

Entry for children under 16 is free, but they must be accompanied by an adult.

Christopher Barsulo, another project coordinator, said that visitors will have to use the shuttle service available at the parking lot to reach the port.

Identity or residence card is mandatory for entering the port.
