NEW YORK – Martinique’s cruise sector continued to net strong results in 2014.

According to the latest statistics from The Martinique Tourism Authority, cruise passenger arrivals for calendar year 2014 were up 71.3 per cent when compared to the same period in 2013.
 
“We could not be more pleased and proud of the results we’re seeing from the cruise sector,” said Karine Roy-Camille, commissioner of the Martinique Tourism Authority.

“Without a doubt, the cruise sector is blossoming here in The Isle of Flowers, and with all the room we still have to grow and improve our tourism product, the best is yet to come.”
 
One of the fastest growing cruise destinations in the Caribbean, Martinique has experienced a 524 per cent increase in cruise passenger arrivals since 2010. For the 2014-2015 cruise season (November 2014–April 2015), The Martinique Tourism Authority is projecting 220 000 cruise passengers among the 176 scheduled port calls.
 
“All of the major North American and European cruise lines have stops planned in Martinique this year, including visits by Royal Caribbean’s celebrated Quantum of the Seas in her inaugural season, and the magnificent Carnival Splendor,” said Roy-Camille.

“We are committed to further investment in the cruise sector and improving our overall tourist product to ensure that the strong results of the past few years will continue in 2015 and beyond.”
