Jamaica is seeing its numbers improve as a cruise destination in the Caribbean with 518 cruise ship port calls in 2016 and more than two million passengers expected in 2017, according to a statement.
Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, the Hon. Edmund Bartlett and Director of Tourism Paul Pennicook will lead discussions on the island’s new Cruise Jamaica initiative at an upcoming cruise trade event.
“Jamaica is experiencing monumental growth as a cruise destination and this is an invaluable opportunity for us to meet with key industry influencers, thought leaders and spokespersons. Together we will discuss issues faced by the industry as a whole and how Jamaica can continue to promote the growth of the cruise sector,” said Minister Bartlett.
