The ship will open its doors on Thursday, selling books at low prices and giving away souvenirs such as bags, cups, pens, medals, and bracelets.

The 132-meter ship, managed by a German non-profit organization, aims to spread "knowledge and hope" in each port it visits. It chose Egypt’s Port Said as its first destination in the new year, followed by Aqaba.

The ship has visited more than 480 ports in 150 countries worldwide, opening its gangways to some 49 million book enthusiasts over 13 years, with a mission to provide a culturally rich experience and foster intercultural connections.
