$780 Million Dollar Vista Class cruise ship, Carnival Venezia, made its inaugural landing in Dominica last Thursday morning.
During a small ceremony to mark the occasion, Captain of Carnival Venezia Claudio Cupisti explained how they select new islands for the cruise tour.
The captain also reminisced about his experiences in Dominica as a young man, which influenced him to suggest that Dominica be included in their Carnival Venezia’s Caribbean tour.
Director of Tourism, Colin Piper says that the Carnival Venezia is the first of many, as this year Dominica is expected to receive 11 more inaugural calls.
