Antigua Cruise Port has launched the second edition of its community training series, Summer Cool II. The four-day training event focuses on preparing Antigua Cruise Port employees and external stakeholders for the upcoming cruise season.
The complimentary sessions will be conducted by Antigua Cruise Port and Global Ports Holding staff. The first course is called “The State of the Cruise Industry” and will be on July 11th. It will give attendees an update on the sector and projections for upcoming seasons. The next session will be July 13th and focuses on International Ship and Port Facility Code (ISPS) Awareness training.

Participants will receive certificates for every course they complete.
ACP General Manager Dona Regis- Prosper said, “We’re continuing to build on our social commitment. We want to share our knowledge with our partners and further develop the cruise sector.
