Royal Call

Barbados is expected to recapture about 26 000 cruise passengers when one of the world’s leading cruise lines resumes calls to the Bridgetown Port next year.  
Royal Caribbean International yesterday announced that it would again be including Barbados in its itineraries in the summer and autumn of 2013 while another ship returns for the 2013-2014 winter season.
Reacting to the news yesterday, chief executive officer of Foster & Ince, Martin Ince, told the Midweek Nation: “I am very very pleased they decided to bring a ship back and particularly that we will have two ships in Barbados in the summer. In March last year when the Serenader Of The Seas was repositioned it meant a loss of approximately 26 000 cruise passengers to Barbados.”
Ince, who along with a team from Foster & Ince Cruises is in England meeting with cruise lines there, credited local tourism and port officials, as well as Foster & Ince Cruises, for successfully managing to influence Royal Caribbean International to come back to Barbados after several meetings and negotiations which took place between the parties following Royal Caribbean’s decision last year to reposition its ships from Barbados.
