Overwhelming response in London to Sibu's Rajang cruise

SIBU: Even before its official launching on February 6 in London, public response to the first river cruise along the mighty Rajang River in the British capital has been overwhelming.

“We have received 60% booking for the entire year. That is an overwhelming response by any standard,” Alexander Sheible told reporters after meeting Second Finance Minister, Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh yesterday at the Sibu Municipal Council.

Alexander, the Hotel Director of Irrawaddy Flotilla Company which is making this maiden cruise along the Rajang, said most of the booking came from the United States and European countries including England and Germany.

He strongly believed the response would be even better after the launching of the cruise.

The cruise will start on July 1 on a nine-day/eight-night cruise from Sibu to Kanowit, Kapit, Baleh River, Pelagus Rapids, Song, Sarikei, Tanjung Manis and back to Sibu.

Alexander said the company would be making three trips per month on the 1st, 10th and 20th at a cost of USD2,500 per person.
