Following in the footsteps of her predecessor MV Doulos, which has visited the city of San Fernando several times, MV Logos Hope is the newest vessel in the GBA Ships fleet. She carries the world’s largest floating book fair and will soon visit the city of San Fernando, La Union, on her maiden voyage around the world.

Additionally, the rest of the fully air conditioned Visitor Experience Deck is also open for the public to explore. From the Welcome Area, which introduces the new vessel through a short movie and interactive displays, to the International Café, which has ice cream, drinks and snacks for sale, there is sure to be something for everyone.
