In a first for this season, Antigua Cruise Port is abuzz with the simultaneous homeporting of two impressive vessels.
Arvia of P&O Cruises has returned to the fifth berth for its homeporting calls, initiating the first of nine planned visits during the 2023/2024 winter period.
Notably, the Excel Class vessel Arvia is set to make a significant impact on the country’s cruise landscape.
Alongside Arvia, the luxury super yacht Emerald Sakara has chosen Antigua as its homeporting destination.
The vessel embarked on its maiden voyage to the Nevis Street Pier and is scheduled to make twelve additional turnaround calls, adding a touch of elegance to the port.

This occurrence marks a milestone for Antigua Cruise Port, hosting four vessels simultaneously for the first time this season.
The bustling activity at the port is a testament to the resilience and appeal of Antigua and Barbuda as a premier destination in the cruise industry.
With Arvia, Emerald Sakara, Marella Discovery, and Artania gracing the port, the season promises excitement and prosperity for the thriving cruise travel sector.
