As Dominica’s tourism sector picks up, the Mein Schiff 3 has given its commitment to make more cruise calls to the island.

The Mein Schiff 3 was the island’s first cruise call to the Roseau Cruise Ship Berth since the passage of Hurricane Maria on January 28, 2018 with about two thousand passengers on board.

Chief Executive Officer of the Dominica Air and Sea Port Authority Benoit Bardouille said the ship will continue to call to the island until April 2018, during his address at the National Rebuilding and Economic Partnership Consultation on Monday 19 February 2018.

The second cruise ship call to Roseau was Saga Holidays on February 4.

Bardouille added that work is being done to have more cruise ships call to the island during the summer and winter seasons.
