By Benjamin Flowers: The Government of Belize and tourism industry stakeholders at every level are celebrating this week following the return of cruise tourism to Belize and the promise of more to come.

On Wednesday, the first cruise ship to dock in Belize in 16 months, the Carnival Vista, brought a total of 2,810 passengers, who disembarked from the Fort Street Tourism Village (FSTV) on various activities. The Belize Tourism Board noted that the passengers had a 97 percent vaccination rate, and that there were rigorous protocols in place for disembarking passengers at the FSTV.

“The arrival of Carnival Vista is a welcome sign for Belize’s Tourism sector, which provides employment for thousands of Belizeans. However, the successful recovery of the tourism industry depends on our continued adherence to the COVID policies and health guidelines that are in place, as well as getting vaccinated against the virus,” the BTB said.

With vaccination playing such an important role in the recovery of the industry, the BTB added that it is partnering with the Ministry of Health and Wellness to launch a vaccination campaign aimed at giving vaccinations to as many people as possible by the end of August.

Another cruise ship is expected to arrive in Belize on July 14th.
