Logos Hope

Logos Hope is a nine-deck biggest floating library on a GBA ship. GBA is an international charity based in Germany. Logos Hope came to Port Rashid Dubai from 21 Jan - 5 Feb, 2011. It is reported that 40 million visitors from 160 countries have so far boarded the Logos Hope. The captain is Captain Dirk Colenbrander from the Netherlands. He has a crew of around 400 of more than 45 nationalities and no one receives a salary on board the Logos Hope.

Their mission, per the Captain :  "I don't want to live just for myself and live a happy life while others in the world have bigger needs. I try to make a difference and bring hope to people."

Built in 1973, Logos Hope offers a stock of half-a-million books to choose from for all age groups, spread over an area 610 square meters.

And we had the opportunity to be on board (when it came to Dubai) and we feel we did our part in contributing to the good course the Charity Ship is bringing to the world...

Excited to be on board a ship, and even more excited with the books it carries... and they're selling cheap too. We boughts loads...

And had fun writing email thanking the Captain, and being one too...

We had good time on board. Dede even got herself an ice cream (from Logos hope's cafe).

Bon Voyage Logos Hope, see you again sometime!..
