Regional 16 Apr, 2021 Follow News

Montego Bay’s cruise industry will restart soon

Jamaica has finalised arrangements with global cruise company Norwegian Cruise Line to homeport one of its vessels in Montego Bay.

The Norwegian Joy service is set to begin on 7 August 2021 and it will be used to transport passengers embarking from Jamaica. Itineraries will include seven-day packages sailing out of Montego Bay.“Ultimately, the vessel, which has an occupancy of approximately 3,800, will operate at 50 percent capacity, in keeping with current COVID-19 protocols in place for the cruise shipping industry,” Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett said. “Passengers will also be required to be fully vaccinated and take a test prior to boarding the ship.”

Jamaica now joins a number of other Caribbean destinations that will be homeports for leading cruise lines.
