A new cruise ship, the Viking Orion of Viking Ocean Cruises made its first visit to Belize on Sunday, March 13, 2022.
“The Belize Tourism Board and its partners were thrilled to host the ship’s first call to our destination and look forward to supporting their growth in Belize,” said the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) in a social media post.
The BTB said the Viking Orion brought 768 tourists to Belize in its maiden call here.
Representatives from the BTB; Caribbean Shipping Agency Limited, the ship’s local port agent; the Belize Immigration Department; and the Fort Street Tourism Village were present at the maiden call ceremony on board at 10:00 on Sunday morning.
Belize benefits from the cruise ship visits as the tourists who arrive here visit many of Belize attractions throughout the country. Since the lifting of several COVID-19 restrictions, the number of cruise ships arriving here has increased considerably.
