Cebu will have a “new street in town” with the arrival of Logos Hope, the world’s largest floating book fair.
The ship offers onboard events for visitors, aside from its array of books.
A highlight of the ship’s visit will be a special event onboard for Cebu’s schoolchildren.
The hour-long “Greatest Treasure” presentation will take kids on an imaginary voyage with an eccentric pirate crew. This interactive program includes games, a puppet show and a Christ-centered message of hope.
The event includes educational book fair. Logos Hope offers an expanded selection of over 5,000 titles at affordable prices. They cover a range of subjects including science, sports, hobbies and family life.
With children’s titles, academic texts, dictionaries, atlases and more, the book fair is something the whole family can enjoy.
Visitors can also witness Logos Hope’s Life Experience presentation, an interactive display that presents the facts about HIV/AIDS in a simple and non-threatening way through a fictitious story about a young man’s life choices.
The rest of the Visitor Experience deck is also open for the public to explore, such as 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.
