Cancellation has impacts on local tourism programming and the region’s economy
Parintins (AM) – Due to technical problems, the arrival of the Azamara Quest Ship to the Valéria region, scheduled for the 23rd, was cancelled, generating impacts on the local tourist program and the economy. Furthermore, the Viking Sea ship, with two planned stops in Parintins, also had its visit cancelled.
The Secretary of Tourism, Karla Viana, informed that the cancellation of the Azamara Quest Ship occurred in Valéria and not in Parintins and that the unforeseen event was due to technical problems on the vessel. The cancellation of two stops on the transatlantic Viking Sea was attributed to operational issues faced by the company responsible for operating the ships.
“We are attentive to any eventuality to inform both residents of the Valéria region and the tourist trade here in the municipality of Parintins. It’s a shame, but unforeseen events happen,”
highlighted secretary Karla Viana.
The tourist season plays an important role in the local economy. The expectation is that no further setbacks will occur, allowing the program to return to its normal course and continue to boost tourism and the region’s economy.
