Yes, she is! Our new treasure, the M.S. Columbus arrived today at about lunch time. Like kids on Christmas morning, we anxiously watched as our luxury vessel, Puteri Sutera escorted her into the Marina.
Carefully maneuvered by two tug boats into the pontoon after traveling many nautical miles across the country to reach us, we were ready at the docking bay to greet her. As she docked in our berthing area for the first time, we fired confetti cannons and air horns to mark this special occasion.
It was such an exciting afternoon!
Here are a few snapshots of the wonderful and heartwarming moment.
Constructed in 1910 in Holland, Columbus has played host to Dutch royalty and Heads of State from all over Europe. Along the most picturesque waterways of the world, she carried out her duties as a service vessel for many of the worlds rich and famous.
Refurbishment project for the Columbus will be starting soon.
