As of Friday Dominica was continuing to accept cruise calls and Chief Executive Officer of the Dominica Air and Seaport Authority BENOIT Bardouille said protocols are in place in light of the Coronavirus.
Bardouille spoke to Kairi News on Friday.
Since then, four cruising giants said Friday they were temporarily suspending sailings as governments and businesses continue to enact tough measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
Royal Caribbean, Carnival, MSC Cruises and the Norwegian Cruise Line announced they were halting trips through April.
Kairi News will seek further comment from the Port Authority on the new implications for cruise calls to the island.
