KINGSTON, Jamaica — Jamaica, on Thursday night, was named the World's Leading Cruise Destination for 2019 at the World Travel Awards held in Muscat, Oman.

Jamaica was also awarded the Caribbean's Leading Cruise Destination, the Caribbean's Leading Cruise Port for the Port of Ocho Rios, and the Caribbean's leading Home Port for the Port of Montego Bay.

The Port Authority of Jamaica (PA) today took to twitter to share its successes.

“With four impressive ports of call, thousands of attractions & an unmatched experience, #CruiseJamaica got the better of several other leading destinations including Seychelles, The Bahamas, Mauritius, Dubai, Venice and Miami!,” PA said in a tweet this morning.

The Port Authority said it sustains the dominance of its world leading cruise shipping product primarily through consistent investments in port infrastructure development and upgrades.

“Our award-winning achievements are also a result of our efforts to improve and enhance towns in which our cruise ports are located. Our success is also supported by strategic marketing initiatives, undertaken singularly as well as collaboratively with the Ministry of Tourism,” the PA said.
