PUERTO PRINCESA CITY — About 1,500 European tourists arrived in this city Saturday morning aboard the M/S Legend of the Seas.

City Tourism Department (CTD) Officer Aileen Cynthia Amurao told local interviews that the European tourists arrived past 7:00 a.m. after sailing through destinations in Europe, Taiwan, and Metro Manila.

To stay for nine hours, some of the European tourists will be visiting the Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR) at Sitio Sabang, Barangay Cabayugan if the weather permits.

Amurao added that Puerto Princesa remains on the top of the list of cruise ship tourism compared to other cities in the Philippines.

Six more cruise ships are being expected before December 2015 ends, she said.
