Barbados Welcomes First Cruise Passengers in More Than a Year

Barbados welcomed the first cruise passengers in more than a year when the Celebrity Millennium ship arrived at the Bridgetown Port on Monday.

All passengers and crew members were fully vaccinated.

And according to Minister of Tourism Senator Lisa Cummins, during a COVID-19 Update press conference on June 5, visitors coming to the island via the air and seaports must have a negative PCR test three days prior to arrival.

“There is testing that is going to be taking place on board the ships that will make sure that people are continually kept safe … Then when they [visitors] land in Barbados via the airport, they are going to be taken via a sterile corridor to the port where they then have to be subjected to further screening in order to embark on the ship, which is homeported here in Barbados. But what’s most important is that so far, what we have begun is vaccinated only cruises. So 100 per cent of the persons on these ships will be vaccinated,” she said.

Furthermore, Minister Cummins said the government has also taken the decision to restrict what types of activities visitors coming to the island on cruise ships can participate at this stage.
