Besides all the damages done to Dominica’s coastline by Hurricane Omar, the 2008 Tourist Season opened today (October 25th) as schedule. A week ago most people was skeptical whether or not the local authorities would be able to get the Roseau Cruise Ship Berth repaired in time to welcome the Emerald Princess – the ship of the season. But after lots of collaborative work by the Discover Dominica Authority and the Dominica Sea/Port Authority the Emerald Princess was able to dock safely, and hundreds of visitors were able to enjoy a the perfect tropical day. What a great day it was to welcome the new tourist season.
A heartfelt thanks to all guys at the Discover Dominica and the Dominica Sea/Port Authority who made a special effort to have everything ready, especially after all damages done by hurricane Omar. Thanks!!!
