With the arrival of the Allure of the Seas, which is owned by the Royal Caribbean shipping company and is thought to be one in all the biggest cruise ships on this planet, Puerto Plata, which has a tourist terminal at Taino Bay, becomes the primary location within the nation to receive the biggest cruise ship that visits the Dominican Republic. The performance of “Allure of the Seas” can have a major economic impact on the nation and can encourage confidence within the cruise industry, in response to Jean Luis Rodriguez, director of the Dominican Port Authority (Apordom), positioning the Dominican Republic to realize its goal of becoming the Caribbean Cruise Hub.
“Based on the incontrovertible fact that each cruise passenger spends about 100 dollars per capita on land, we can be talking about an economic spill in Puerto Plata of greater than half one million dollars.” “This fills us with pride to see in Taino Bay a dream come true, not only for many who descend from the cruise ships but in addition for the people of Puerto Plata, whose quality of life has been impacted by the arrival of an increasing number of cruise passengers,” said the top of Apordom. On his side, Harold Sanders, manager of Taino Bay, affirmed that these 5,822 cruise passengers are the biggest amount they’ve received for the reason that opening of the terminal and that with the arrival of “Allure of the Seas,” the port is placed throughout the threshold with the capability to receive such a vessel.
“92% of the people on the ship got to know Puerto Plata, and that speaks of an achievement for Taino Bay and for the province that receives a crucial economic spill.” “Of the 5,370 passengers who got off, 1,612 went on a tour, 696 took taxis to different parts of town, and the remaining, 3,162, distributed themselves, walked to the historic center, and visited the port, leaving on average a bit of greater than half one million dollars only in at some point for Puerto Plata,” assured Sanders.
