Written by ZDK News on April 1, 2021
Antigua Cruise Port has finalized negotiations with Carnival owned P&O Cruises, the
world’s largest leisure company, to homeport a new mega-ship in Antigua.
Antigua Cruise Port led by Dona Regis-Prosper, Global Ports Holdings General Manager
for Antigua, says they are thrilled to partner with P&O.
Global Ports Holding PLC entered into a concession agreement with the Government of
Antigua and Barbuda in 2019 to develop and manage Antigua’s cruise port.
As part of this agreement, GPH recently completed construction of the fifth berth, which is
the newest pier at St. John’s Port.
The vessel Arvia, which is currently under construction in Germany will be one of the first
ships confirmed to use the new pier, which will enable Oasis class and Excellence class
vessels to bring tens of thousands of additional passengers to Antigua annually.
