The Minister informed that subsequent calls are also scheduled for the Roseau Cruise Ship Terminal for the season despite the first call being at the Woodbridge Bay Port.

A call was also issued to the taxi drivers, tour guides, vendors, braiders, tour operators, and all who will be interacting within the safe corridor established for cruise ships to give the same Dominican hospitality and experience to the passengers beyond their expectations as they enjoy the island’s natural wonders.
