The cruise port in St John's is breaking records.

Antigua’s fast-expanding cruise port just set an all-time record for visitors in a single day, Caribbean Journal has learned.

The St John’s port welcomed 15,808 passengers last week, with a total of five different cruise ships in t John’s — along with a sixth ship into Falmouth Harbour.

That included Costa Serena, Costa Pacifica, Aida Perla, and Explorer of the Seas and SeaDream Yacht Club.

The record comes as Antigua winds down what has been an “extremely successful” home-porting season, which included ships from P & O Cruises Arvia, Emerald Sakara, Royal Clipper, and SeaDream Yacht Club.

So far, Antigua Cruise Port has recorded 309 transit calls this season, an increase of more than 34 calls.

“With these incredible passenger numbers, we are on our way to achieving another record-breaking goal – welcoming over 800,000 passengers to Antigua & Barbuda by December 2024. To date, we have received 299,803 guests for the year and expect to have welcomed over 400,000 guests by the end of the season in April,” said Cynthia Jacobs Browne, Antigua Cruise Port’s Financial Controller and Officer-In-Charge.

This week, Antigua Cruise Port will be seeing another five-ship day, officials said.
