MV Doulos is back in Port Klang, Malaysia

MV Doulos was built in 1914, two years after Titanic’s ill-fated voyage. She was first named Medina as freighter serving the Atlantic; during World War II and later they renamed the ship the Roma, and converted her into a passenger ship and later on renamed it as MV Franca C. and converted her into a motor vessel and a cruise liner. 63 years later, in her current role as Doulos, she is manned by a volunteer crew and visits sea ports world-wide.

In every port that the ship visits, conferences are held in the ship lounges which promotes international understanding and world-wide education. Among the subject topics are leadership, family life, marriage, youth training and cultural show.

Do catch the opportunity to see this vessel, buy books and share experiences with crewmembers of the vessel which is widely acclaimed as the ‘floating Book Fair’. The fair has about 6,000 titles of books for sale, covering a wide range of subjects, including science, cookery, sports, technology, classic literature, children’s books and a large selection of Christian titles.

The following are events happening onboard the ship. (Taken from Kimmysia and from the brochure)

    […] I’ll probably will go again during day time to take more pictures as my cam really sucks at night scene and since they have a cultural show end of the month. As I have mentioned previously MV Doulos will be in Port Klang till end of July before they sail to Kuantan port. It is worth a visit if you had no plan over the weekend. Read previous entry on MV Doulos here. […]
