Royal Caribbean Vessels Visit Antigua Cruise Port For Technical Calls
11.06.2021 Royal Caribbean Vessels Visit Antigua Cruise Port For Technical Calls

Enchantment of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas, two Vision-class cruise ships from the Royal Caribbean fleet, made a technical call for provisions at Antigua Cruise Port today. The vessels are on their way to dry dock and wet dock locations for general inspection and maintenance. As with other recent technical calls, no passengers are aboard the vessels, and the crew will remain on board.

Dona Regis-Prosper, General Manager of Antigua Cruise Port, explained the recent increase in technical calls. “Now that cruising has officially resumed in the region, we can expect to see more technical calls to our port due to our strategically significant location. Our proximity to the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico puts us near key maritime lanes that are traversed regularly by cruise lines and cargo vessels, so taking on provisions here in Antigua is a straightforward process for our cruise line partners. We are pleased to be of service.”

Vision of the Seas and Grandeur of the Seas will also visit Antigua Cruise Port for technical lay ups in the next few months. Each ship will remain in port for intervals of thirty days from July 1 – September 2021.

“Now that Royal Caribbean has reaffirmed its COVID-19 testing requirements and is about to embark on its first cruise with Adventure of the Seas departing from Nassau on June 12, we anticipate that we will see a lot more activity from this brand gracing our shores. We have recently entered discussions with Royal Caribbean to determine when they can safely resume sailing to Antigua & Barbuda. These discussions are ongoing and have been very positive.”
