Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Creates Smooth Sailing for Cruise Lines

As reported last month, Norwegian Cruise Line and Carnival Cruise Lines both had removed Antigua & Barbuda from their itineraries. However after the Tourism Delegation of Antigua and Barbuda met during a series of meetings in Miami earlier this week, both cruise lines will return to the ports.

Norwegian Cruise Line Bliss and Epic will make their inaugural call starting in December; each cruse ship holds over 4000 guests.

TUI Cruises, which has not made call at the port in nearly three years will begin a major push starting in early November bringing in over 37,000 passengers throughout the 13 calls during the 2019-2020 season.

Royal Caribbean and MSC Cruises will continue to be regular itinerary stops.

It is Antigua and Barbuda’s goal to become a “premier port of call with all major cruise lines” in the coming years, according to the Minister of Tourism, Honorable Charles Fernandez.
