The Discover Dominica Authority is preparing for the eventual return of the cruise industry as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
Earlier this week, the DDA engaged various stakeholders on the topic on ‘Maximizing Opportunities in Cruise.’
Cruise industry stakeholders delved into issues related to the Cruise Industry, Excellence in Destination Delivery Excellence in Operations, Safety and Security and Excellence in Community.
The DDA says it is working together with the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) and Aquila, the programme’s facilitator, to provide relevant training and coaching programs which will assist tourism service providers to be ready when cruise activities resume and to raise the level of service excellence.
The Cruise industry has been rocked by the impact of the Coronavirus with cruise lines shutting down services at least until July in the first instance.
