Major cruise line TUI is coming back to Antigua.
After an absence of three years, TUI Cruises has confirmed that it has added St John’s, Antigua back to its 14-day Caribbean itineraries.
With 13 transit calls in the winter season of 2019-2020, around 38,000 TUI passengers will be visiting Antigua on board the company’s Mein Schiff fleet.
That will mean an estimated $1 million in revenue for Antigua, according to the company, in addition to the revenue generated in onshore spending.
TUI had been a frequent caller to Antigua in the winter seasons from 2009-2015.
With a fleet of six ships, TUI will remain an important caller for the fast-growing destiantion.
