WILLEMSTAD - As part of the start of the new cruise year 2023, Curaçao Ports Authority (CPA) and Aida Cruises (Carnival UK) organized a meeting last Sunday with Minister Ruthmilda Larmonie (replacing Minister Cijntje of Economic Development), representatives of CTB, DMO, SKO and also members of the press on board of the Aida Perla.
During this meeting, Captain Ziegler emphasized that Aida Cruises wants to maintain a good relationship of many years with the port and with Curaçao as a favorite destination. During a presentation, the captain commented that based on the results of a survey, Curaçao emerged as the No. 1 destination in the Caribbean for AIDA Cruises passengers.
Passengers are delighted with the city center and our beaches. It was also determined that when the cruise ships are in our port until late in the evening the colorful lights of our downtown offer a beautiful view. The meeting concluded with an extensive tour of the ship. CPA and Aida Cruises will continue to work together to bring more cruise ships to the island.
