Minister Of Tourism Has Accomplished Additional Cruise Calls From Carnival Cruises In 2012



July 8th 2011, Aruba.



ORANJESTAD-The Minister of Tourism, Otmar Oduber recently met with the executives of Carnival
Cruises in Miami that concluded into beneficial results for the island. Carnival Cruises will expand
the number of calls to Aruba from 9 this year to 23 port calls in 2012. The cruise ships of Carnival
Cruises calling to Aruba will be much larger and will account to total of above 80,000 passengers
for 2012. The large expansion of the number of calls of Carnival Cruises will ensure a very
successful cruise tourism for Aruba in 2012.

Carnival Miracle which has a capacity for 2,300 passengers will call to Aruba 6 times during 2012.
Carnival Freedom with the capacity of 2,974 passengers will call 8 times, Carnival Valor with the
capacity of 2,974 passengers will call 2 times. Finally Carnival Cruises newest vessel to be
inaugurated in 2012, Carnival Breeze with the capacity for 3,700 passengers will call 2 times at
the port of Oranjestad.

Good news for commerce in Oranjestad is that Carnival Cruises will call on the island as well
during the summer months of 2012. The peak of cruise season in the Caribbean is during the
winter months. In addition, the cruises vessels will depart Oranjestad at 23:30 hours instead of
17:00 hours. This has to do much with the overall good safety level for passengers on the island
during the evening hours.
