CARNIVAL TRIUMPH MARKS A BIG RETURN TO THE NATURE ISLAND

Carnival-Triumph1756 edited-3Amidst a backdrop of ceremony and celebration, Dominica welcomed Carnival Cruise Line's famed Carnival Triumph in February as it made its inaugural call at the Roseau Cruise Ship Berth. Carnival Cruise Lines began calling on Dominica in 1989, but stopped in 2010. The arrival of Carnival Triumph marks the return of Carnival in a big way.

"It is an honor to welcome Carnival Triumph, its passengers and crew," said Colin Piper, Dominica's director of tourism. "We are pleased to build on this long-standing partnership between Carnival Cruise Lines and Dominica that began more than 25 years ago."

Cruise is a major component of Dominica's growing tourism sector. There were 188 calls carrying 282,404 passengers during the 2013/2014 cruise season. An estimated 191 cruise ships are expected to call on Dominica during the 2014/2015 season, bringing 292,210 visitors to the island. At least nine calls from Carnival ships are scheduled for the next cruise season, including Carnival's Valor, Pride, Sunshine, Dream and Glory.
