Almost 4,000 cruise ship passengers arrive in Trinidad


    Almost 4,000 cruise passengers from Europe, Guadeloupe, Martinique and other countries came to Trinidad today on board the MSC Preziosa.

    The Tourism Ministry says they entered the Cruise Ship Complex dancing to the hot soca songs played by the DJ.

    Four French students from St George’s College, Barataria, provided translation services as about 700 of the visitors went on pre-booked tours to popular places of interest, through an estimated 500 privately arranged tours.

    The Ministry says Trinidad will be hosting 11 more vessels in the coming weeks, including Carnival Monday.
