Barbados could see record cruise ship arrivals

(Barbados Nation) Barbados could see the largest volume of cruise ship passenger arrivals in its history during the 2015/16 season.

Martin Ince, chief executive officer of Foster & Ince, the island’s largest cruise agency, predicts cruise numbers could reach 800 000  with two of the world’s mega ships scheduled to make calls at the Bridgetown Port along with several which his agency had  booked already.

Mein Schiff 3, the newest ship owned by Tui Cruises of Germany, and the Britannia will be home porting in Barbados next year.

“The 2015/2016 year for cruise is going to be the largest cruise season this country has ever seen,”  Ince told the MIDWEEK NATION.
