“We need to be prepared for the new normal life, and this virtual tour event is a part of ‘PELNI Lifestyle’ to let people feel the sensation of exploring our vessel,” head of corporate secretary at PELNI, Yahya Kuncoro, said in a statement issued on Monday.
The tour will be conducted virtually via the Zoom platform from 9 a.m. on Friday, July 17, 2020. During the tour, participants will get to take a closer look at Kelud's rooms and facilities as well as interact with the ship’s captain.
Information will also be provided about PELNI’s health protocols for the new normal era and exclusive services and facilities offered on board its vessels.
“This virtual tour will give such an experience to participants to look around PELNI's vessel while #dirumahaja (staying home), and it might be an impressive one,” Kuncoro noted, adding that virtual tours will be offered for other motor vessels later.
“We are planning another tour with a different atmosphere as (it will offer people a view) of our livestock carrier, so people can understand how livestock are shipped using PELNI’s vessels,” he continued.
Registrations for the virtual tour of Kelud can be made on the website, https://bit.ly/IkutVirtualTour. The tour is priced at Rp30,000 (US$2) per participant.
