Social Share

Forty campers toured the cruise ship Carnival Victory recently.The campers, from The Port Experience summer camp, have been focusing on the cruise industry, in particular on matters related to the Barbados Port Authority.  Carnival Victory group coordinator Gertrude Booysen took the children, ranging in age from eight to 16, all over the ship – or, rather, to the sections that could be covered in a day.Booysen explained the several features of the cruise ship to the campers, who were wowed by what they saw. The children also learnt about the strict rules observed on the cruise liner. Camp coordinator Freida Nicholls was happy about the tour since it was “very beneficial to the children”.The campers were also treated to tours of the Wildlife Reserve and Harrison’s Cave, popular tourist destinations. The Port Experience, in its second year, is part of the Barbados Port Inc.’s educational outreach programme. It focuses on port operations such as cruising, importing, exporting, environment and national security. Campers are chosen from among the families of port employees. (DB)
