M/V Saint John Paul II got a resounding welcome from the Maltese public on Sunday 10th March when the Virtu Ferries Terminal came alive with over 12 thousand people enjoying a family Sunday day out to visit the vessel.
The verdict out there was loud and clear – she truly is a “Significant Ship”, the verdict shared by the acclaimed Royal Institute of Naval Architects. As wine and Sicilian and Maltese delicacies flowed, the mood went a few notches higher with HCOV and Pusè’s versatility and talent. In the meantime, those on board were entertained to the melodious strings of Caroline Calleja’s harp. The melody in tune with the vessel’s luxurious interior further enhanced by works of leading Maltese contemporary artists. A Maltese occasion for Maltese families if ever there was one. Virtu thanks all those who came to welcome Saint John Paul II home as well as all those Maltese and Sicilian associates who, with their stands, added so much to the occasion both by their presence and contribution.
THANK YOU TO ALL OUR PASSENGERS, VISITORS AND ASSOCIATES FOR A MEMORABLE DAY
