Antigua Cruise Port Welcomes Msc Seaview’s Inaugural Visit And Pilots First Home porting Operation


Saturday 4th December 2021 showcased another historic day for Antigua Cruise Port as the MSC Seaview of MSC Cruises made its entrance into the St. John’s Harbour with a total of 1367 passengers onboard.

The vessel’s welcoming committee consisted of Antigua Cruise Port’s General Manager, Mrs. Dona Regis-Prosper, Operations Manager – Pier Services, Mr. Rawle Reynolds, Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority’s Executive Director, Mr. Colin James, Marketing Communications Manager, Ms. Maria Blackman and representatives of the local media houses, accompanied by the lustrous playing of sweet pan music.

To complement the inaugural call of the MSC vessel, was ACP’s first ever homeporting operation which commenced simultaneously at Nevis Pier.

The Royal Clipper of Star Clipper Cruises? had a total of 50 passengers disembarking and 150 passengers embarking.

The homeporting process entailed facilities for Covid-19 testing, document verification and baggage screening.

The Customs & Excise Division and Immigration Department respectively, coordinated a speedy and seamless boarding process along with members of the ship’s crew to ensure that all passengers were onboard by 7:00 p.m. so that the cruise vessel could weigh anchor at 10:00 p.m.

Antigua Cruise Port’s Operations Team inclusive of the Health and Safety Officer, Facility Manager, Security and Custodians were ever present to monitor, oversee the operations and offer guidance as needed.

  1. Developing news story coming out Louisiana:

    A cruise ship with 3,200 fully vaccinated passengers on board, has suffered a massive outbreak of the Covid-19 virus.

    The Norwegian cruise liner, where the 3,200 passengers boarded from New Orleans, on the 28th November 2021, and then moved on to Mexico; Honduras; and Belize, before returning to New Orleans on December 5th 2021 when the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus was discovered on board ship.

    All passengers are now having to be tested before disembarking. If anyone is found tested POSITIVE, they’ll have to stay quarantined on board until a negative result.

    The Louisiana Department of Health Governor, John Bel Edwards said: “We are aware and working closely with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to implement existing Covid-19 agreements and protocols with the cruise line …”

    Again, I have a genuine question for Antiguan’s who are fully vaccinated and followed all the governments vaccination mandates and protocols:

    If the vaccines work, what’s going on?

    We are almost a year into the mass vaccination campaigns. And even before they began, the public health experts, media and politicians explicitly and repeatedly promised that the vaccines would end the pandemic if enough people took them.
