Tobago to host Caribbean Cruise forum

The development of the cruise industry in the Caribbean will be the main focus of a Caribbean Cruise forum, scheduled to be held here next week.

The Seatrade Caribbean Cruise forum will showcase the region and provide cruise line executives from across Europe with an “in-depth understanding and intimate knowledge” of the region.

The meeting will focus on the scope for development and opportunities within the Caribbean, home-port and infrastructure.

The May 13-14 forum is being hosted by the division of Tourism and Transportation.

Tobago has witnessed a 200 percent growth in its cruise sector in 2014/2015, mainly fuelled by the jump in calls from European cruise liners.
