Carnival Cruise Lines, the world’s largest cruise ship company, has announced that starting next year Tobago will be featured in its itinerary for the first time.
The announcement came as part of a series of new longer voyages the cruise line will be offering.
According to a media release from the Tobago House of Assembly’s Division of Tourism and Transport, this is expected to bring 10,642 Carnival Cruise Line passengers to the sister isle and will increase the number of passengers visiting Tobago during the 2015/2016 cruising season to 81,050.
Tobago will be part of an itinerary that includes St Maarten, Dominica, Barbados, Scarborough, Grenada, Martinique, St Kitts and St Thomas.
Secretary of Tourism and Transportation Tracy Davidson-Celestine described the news as being good for Tobago’s growing cruise industry.
“This year we saw a 200 per cent growth in cruise ship guests coming to Tobago and next cruise season we are again going to see double digit growth. This is testimony to the hard work that we are doing as a Division and as the THA and what we really want to see is Tobagonians taking advantage of the opportunities this presents,” she said in the media release.

“We have to prepare for more passengers, we need to ensure that when the guests come here we have enough activities for them, whether that means tours, craft, food, water sports etc, we need our people to be entrepreneurs. Look at what is possible and plan for the next season. We can only create the opportunities it’s for the people of Tobago to now take advantage of them,” she added.
The Division of Tourism and Transport stated that other ships--the Carnival Miracle, Dream and Glory—will also offer the longer itineraries and will be visiting ports like Bonaire, Martinique, Dominica, Grenada and Scarborough.
“Scarborough, Tobago, will be visited by the Carnival Sunshine ship beginning in February 2015,” the division added.
Also commenting on the news was Carnival’s senior vice-president of itinerary planning and revenue development Terry Thornton who noted that longer cruises have been in demand with Carnival guests and travel agents.
“Based on feedback from our guests and travel agent partners, we’re delighted to offer these longer length voyages which provide vacationers an opportunity to visit some of the world’s most breathtaking destinations while enjoying all the wonderful on-board innovations and features found aboard Carnival’s ships,” he said.

picturesque city where a KFC sign n shanty flea markets isn't the first thing that greets them upon docking
tours
steelpan and dance welcome
duty free area worth a damn
