Diamond Princess Calls in Guam

Diamond Princess

The Diamond Princess became the second cruise ship to call in Guam since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, arriving dockside last week.

The Princess Cruises’ ship was carrying 1,545 passengers and 1,097 crew according to local authorities.

“The arrival of the Diamond Princess will be the second passenger vessel to call on Guam this year with the last vessel having visited our island just last Friday,” said Port General Manager
Rory J. Respicio, prior to the call. “Thanks to Governor Lou Leon Guerrero and Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio’s leadership in marketing Guam as a world-class destination, three more luxury cruise ships are on schedule to arrive within the calendar year.”

The Diamond Princess was sailing from Hawaii and docked at the F-5 pier, where guests were greeted dockside by cultural dancers and were able to experience a taste of Guam straight off the ship at various local food trucks staged at the Port for the day.

The cultural performance was coordinated with the assistance of Guam Visitors Bureau President and CEO former Governor Carl T.C. Gutierrez.
