Cruise ship boost for Antigua

ST. JOHN’S — The month of January is expected to be a good one for the cruise sector, according to President of the Antigua & Barbuda Cruise Tourism Association Nathan Dundas.

Dundas said 73 vessels will be calling at the twin-island state, making January one of the busiest months of the season compared to other months.

He said the island welcomed 53 calls in December, while 60 vessels have been booked for the month of February.

“We are hoping dearly that the opportunity created by this high number of calls for January would translate to some much-needed increased sales for our stakeholders, in terms of added revenue for the country,” Dundas said.

The cruise head also spoke of an additional call from the Silver Spirit tomorrow, as it makes an unscheduled call to the island due to congestion in St. Maarten.

Dundas further noted: “It is so important that we continue to position ourselves in such a way to benefit from increased and unexpected calls to our port.” (Antigua Observer)
