Busy cruise season coming
Barbados’ 2013/14 cruise season is set to record an improved performance over last year.
Managing director of Foster & Ince Cruises, Martin Ince, said his company, a leading local cruise business operator, was on track to realize all ship bookings made last year. He said the island was “in full swing of a very, very busy cruise season”.
According to the cruise business expert, the Bridgetown Port will have “the busiest week on record for a very long time” next week when three or four ships were expected to dock every day.
The 4 000-plus capacity Norwegian Breakaway, the largest ship in the fleet of the Norwegian cruise line, will make its inaugural call to Barbados Sunday.
That it is sailing so far south from the New York port was “very, very exciting” to Ince who anticipates Barbados would be welcoming about five new ships this year.
