Cruise Liner to begin service out of Port of Spain

According to the general sales agent Charles Carvalho, he had a discussion with the ship’s owner at a cruise conference in St Maarten last October to have the vessel set sail for Trinidad’s port. 

Carvalho said that the Adriana was sailing in the Baltic Sea, in Russia: “but due to the current conflict there, the owner decided to reposition the vessel to another destination but remembered our discussion in St Maarten and decided to bring it to the southern Caribbean with the home base in Trinidad”.

Carvalho said that as Trinidad is a manufacturing country, he hopes the ship is supplied with local products, with local chefs, entertainers and staff to make it a true Caribbean cruise.

He said that the future plans include, “getting a larger one (ship) in the not too distant future where we would then target other nationals from the Caribbean, South, Central and Latin America to fly to Trinidad and board the cruises from Port of Spain”.

Perspective destinations currently include places such as Margarita, Barbados, Tobago and Grenada for a five night cruise. Carvalho said they are looking into a seven night cruise to other destinations.

The liner docked off Trinidad two weeks ago and is expected to begin sailing by the end of July. The vessel’s on-board facilities include a swimming pool, sun lounge, three bars, a night club, restaurant, casino, spa, sauna, duty free shop and televisions in each cabin.

There are three packages available to choose from. The first is a two-night deal for $1339 from Port of Spain to Charlotteville, Tobago.

The second deal is a five-night package costing $3799 that sails from Port of Spain to Porlamar, Isle Margarita to St. George’s, Grenada to Bridgetown, Barbados, to Charlotteville, Tobago and return to Trinidad.

The seven-night package will go further to St. Lucia, Martinique and St. Maarten at a cost of $5299.

All packages includes meals and port taxes, drinks are extra.

The ocean liner has a capacity of 350 passengers with an estimated 80 crew members. It was built in the 1970s and has eight life boats and a number of inflatable life rafts.
