Using the Cruise Ship
Now that you have built and finished your City Port you can send tourists to your City! Remember that having these tourists in your City will help increase your coins and speed up your business payouts!
A cruise ship will arrive at your City Port. Collect from your Cruise Ship to unload tourists into your City. You will need to Supply the Cruise Ship with 300 Goods every time you want to send tourists to your City so make sure to produce enough goods before hand. When collecting from your Cruise Ships, your payout will be 1,350 Coins and you will also receive a chance to gain a collection item!
TIP: Make sure to have all of your buisnesses supplied before you unload these tourists! Make sure your city has businesses for them to shop at.
Make sure to let the tourists shop around before you leave your city. Going to your neighbors or refreshing may cause them to disappear. It is best to let the tourists finish their shopping and help boom your businesses before starting your next missions.
You can only unload tourists in your City once every 12 Hours. During that down time the Cruise Ship will be out and about collecting more passengers to come to your City! As mentioned before, make sure to strategize your timing of when you want to unload your tourists so it coordinates with your businesses being ready.
Tourism Collection Reward
As mentioned earlier, you can gain Cruise Ship Collection Items. Once you have one of each you can redeem your collection!
