ONE of the two cruise ships that landed in Tunis before the terrorist attacks occurred last Wednesday (March 18), arrived in Palma de Mallorca on Friday (March 20).
The ‘Costa Fascinosa’ cruise ship arrived at Palma’s Port at around 5am with 3,148 passengers on board, 13 fewer than those who arrived in Tunis.
At around 8am, passengers, mainly Italian, started disembarking.
The company in charge, Costa Cruceros, had confirmed the day before the deaths of five of its passengers, four Italians and a Russian citizen.
In addition, another seven Italian and Russian citizens were injured during the attack and remain hospitalised.
The attacks took place at the Bardo Museum when gunmen opened fire killing 23 people, amongst which were Spanish, British and German citizens.
“It is a very sad day for international tourism. We have to join forces with governments to prevent attacks like these, to condemn them and to give our condolences,” said the Hotel Federation of Mallorca (FEHM) in a statement.
