Bahamas: The Bahamas‘ Prime Minister – Hubert Minnis, welcome back Royal Caribbean International to The Bahamas after a year’s long closedown of the cruise industry due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

During the Homeporting Inauguration of Adventure of the Seas official ceremony and plaque presentation held at Pompey Square, PM Minnis asserted, “It has been a long and challenging period for our country and for the entire world, including the global tourism industry and the cruising sector.”

The passengers of Homeporting cruise would fly into Nassau to start and spend time onshore to conclude the cruise return to Nassau to arrive and fly back home. The spin-off from this movement of guests might appear in more hotel room nights.

The prime minister added that the Royal Caribbean organisation offers the best of both worlds: a cruise guest who counts on a hotel stay of one to two nights.

“The weekly movement of guests in and out of Nassau would need additional airlift, the use of local ground transportation services and many other professional services,” the prime minister cited.

The experience of the Seas would homeport in Nassau and tour additional islands in The Bahamas over a seven-night route. This would include visiting Grand Bahama and a complete day at Coco Cay, then the Royal Caribbean’s private destination in the Berry Islands, which engages a good number of Bahamians.

PM Minnis further informed that “This homeporting initiative means that even more Bahamians across the islands can get back to work as the sector continues its recovery.”

The venture of the Seas route would also provide ambitious Bahamians with the opportunity to get benefit themselves from the cruise line’s demand for the – provisions, services, tour journeys, attractions, and authentic, memorable one-of-a-kind guest experiences.

The Bahamas government shared this information via social media. The residents of the island commented on the post and expressed their excitement, and appreciated the efforts of the government.
