It was a busy day for the tourism sector with a total of five cruise ships docked at the Roseau Cruise ship berth, the Woodbridge Bay Port at Fond Cole and the Portsmouth Cruise ship Berth yesterday.
According to information from the Discover Dominica Authority, this is the second time during this tourist season that the Nature Island of the Caribbean had that many ships on port in the Roseau area at one time.
Information received from the Tourist Information Desk at the Dame Eugenia Charles Boulevard (Bay Front), stated that the MV Regata, MV Carnival Victory, MV Caribbean Princess, MV Ocean Village and the MSY Windsurf were the vessels anchored on the Roseau coasts today.
Two were docked at the Dame Eugenia Charles Boulevard in Roseau, while another two were on the Fond Cole coast. The fifth ship was docked at the Portsmouth Cruise ship Berth.
Though the head count of visitors was high, some vendors who were interviewed by Dominica News Online said that sales were relatively slow, as compared to the number of visitors.
Dominca News Online photographer Larry Larroque caught a glimpse of the scenes on the boulevard on Tuesday.
