Logos Hope, the world’s largest floating book fair, will soon visit Bridgetown, Barbados. Many may still remember the last visit in November 2009, when over 26 000 visitors were welcomed up the gangways during a 19-day stay.

Now, Logos Hope will be making another voyage to Barbados before continuing to St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada and other ports in the Caribbean.

Logos Hope will be open in Bridgetown from November 9, 2017, and will be berthed at the Flour Mill, Spring Garden Highway.

“We are looking forward to the visit to Barbados. We believe that through our crew’s friendliness and hospitality our visitors can experience how people from all around the world can work together,” said Captain Samuel Hils of Germany.

“We’re already anticipating being able to share our life stories, as well as the experience of the book fair and International Café with many who will come and visit,” he added

Logos Hope’s onboard book fair offers an expanded selection of over 5,000 different titles of books at affordable prices. They cover a wide range of subjects including science, sports, hobbies, cookery, arts, medicine, and languages. With children’s titles, academic texts, dictionaries, atlases and more, the book fair is something the whole family can enjoy.

The rest of the Visitor Experience Deck is also open for the public to explore from the Welcome Area, which introduces the vessel through a short movie and interactive displays to the International Café which has ice cream, drinks and snacks for sale.

MV Logos Hope is operated by GBA Ships e.V., an international, charitable organisation registered in Germany. Since 1970, the organisation has welcomed over 45 million visitors up the gangways in over 160 countries and territories around the world.  (PR)
