Barbados Welcomes Celebrity Silhouette to its Shores

The luxury cruise ship, Celebrity Silhouette, from Celebrity Cruises is the sixth inaugural cruise ship to make a call on the Port of Bridgetown for the season.

The Bridgetown Port - A Record of Contribution and Service

As we celebrate 47 years of Independence, this is a time to review the past and look to the future.  This has been a strategic policy of the Bridgetown Port from inception.

The Port is a major port of entry for 90% of the goods used in the manufacturing and retail sectors in Barbados.  A major part of its responsibility has been dedicated to supporting businesses in the import/export trade, a job that it carries out without any government subsidies, unlike the majority of ports in the region.

Summer Cruise Boost for 2013

Cruise Passengers Seek an ‘Experience’

Over the years, the summer months heralded vacation travel for hundreds of Barbadians, and cruising is quickly becoming the preferred choice for many. Since the 1980s, Barbadians have watched as majestic, imposing cruise ships sailed in and out of the Bridgetown Port, bringing travellers from diverse parts of the globe. Something about these mega-ships captures the imagination. Their size has increased, and most of them boast a capacity of over 2,500 passengers, with the newer ships carrying over 3,500 passengers, plus crew.
