Monday, December 8, 2008
The new Colon terminal experienced the launch of the Enchantment of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean Ship that will sail the southern Caribbean with approximately 2600 passengers for the next six days, visiting Cartagena and Santa Marta in Colombia, Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire.
The vessels using the Port of Colon in the Panamanian Caribbean as a home port usually sail with an occupancy of between 90 and 100%.
Tens of thousands of tourists board cruise ships bound for the Caribbean, generating a strong hotel business, which during the 2012-2014 season should make about $75 million.
Royal Caribbean has confirmed the port of Colon as its point of departure for cruise ships until 2011-2012.
Security and Tourism authorities in Panama met to prepare actions for the start of the ninth cruise ship season and the first for the Panama Homeport project.
