Trinidad and Tobago to become a major cruise line destination

At the recently held Florida Caribbean Cruise Association Conference and Trade Show in Puerto Rico, Randall Mitchell, Minister of Tourism, Trinidad and Tobago had discussions with the executives of various cruise lines.

Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley, St. Lucia Prime Minister Allen Chastanet, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló and several regional ministers of tourism were present at the event. About 100 cruise executives, who are the decision makers in the cruise industry and 30 regional government officials attended the event.

“The cruise sector is one in which ship itineraries are often booked long in advance, so attending conferences like these and understanding what the decision-makers value is essential not just for short-term gains, but to lay the groundwork for sustainable, consistent growth in arrivals,” said Mitchell.
