Logos Hope

I went to Logos Hope last week, wanted to post the picture here but I end up sleeping upon reaching home most of the time (While playing game on my phone) Anyway they charted a bus to pick up the visitor from the entrance of sabah port. I took some picture of the ship while in the bus;

Anyway copied this from Wikipedia:

MV Logos Hope [2] is operated by the German charitable organisation GBA Ships e.V. As the fourth ship operated by the organisation, she follows in the line of MV Logos, the wrecked hulk of which now sits on a rock shelf on the Chilean coast, MV Logos II which was retired in the fall of 2008 and which Logos Hope was designed to replace, and MV Doulos which was sold to a Singaporean interest in 2009.

Twice as big as any previous ship operated by the organisation, the ship was completely refitted over a period of 5 years. Logos Hope provides a better quality of life for crew as well as a wider range of activities for visitors and guests. The newly created Logos Hope Experience (which is situated on a deck that was installed into the original ferry’s car area) holds up to 800 visitors at any time, with capacity to host an additional 700 in the Hope Theatre and Logos Lounge. This publicly accessible deck offers visitors an introduction to the vessel and the organisation, a book fair featuring around 7,000 different titles, a visual presentation called the Journey of Life and the International Cafe.

The all volunteer crew and staff of 400 people, represent around 50 different countries. Unlike the crew during her original use as a car ferry, crew and staff normally join the organisation to live on board for two years.

It was the cafeteria next after the book section, they had their own ice cream, kids section and life X-perience… not ure what is this about as it was close when me and Griselda visited that day.

There was a section which I didn’t take picture much… because the whole wall was painted with a story about a yong adult who seems to have gone wild and end up going back to the right track back after loosing everything… more or less you might understand the story if you been there lol:
