The port’s tour service was recently recognized as one of the Leading Tour Operators in the Caribbean by Carnival Cruise Lines.
In 2014 the Dominican Republic handled some 435,000 cruise ship passengers. The port of La Romana, situated on the country’s eastern region, handled 71% of the overall cruise ship tourists who visited the country.
Since 2011 the La Romana port has reported an impressive double-digit growth.
The “Caribbean’s Leading Tour Operator” award recognizes “outstanding quality and performance and assessment of the program of excursions that the Central Romana operates for passenger Carnival.”
The award was presented by Captain Claudio Cupisti, of the Carnival Conquest, to the Commercial Director of the Cruise Port of La Romana, Mr. Andres Fernandez.
