Video: First Dockyard Cruise Ship Of 2015 Visits

April 7, 2015

The 66,084-ton Riviera operated by Oceania Cruises was the first cruise ship of the 2015 cruise season to berth at Dockyard’s King’s Wharf when it arrived this past weekend carrying a projected 1,082 passengers.

The Riviera’s visit represents the first of thirteen cruise ship visits to the island this April, with the majority being what is described as occasional callers with only one or two visits scheduled for the year. On Wednesday April 29, the Norwegian Breakaway is scheduled to arrive as the first of our regular or contract cruise ships, with Celebrity’s Summit due the following day.

The Oceania Cruises website says, “Riviera offers guests multiple dining venues, of which six are open-seating gourmet restaurants with no surcharge. La Reserve by Wine Spectator offers enlightening seminars, tastings, and gourmet food pairings.

“Riviera also features The Culinary Center, the only hands-on cooking school at sea which features a range of cooking classes by master chefs. In the Artist Loft, talented artists-in-residence offer step-by-step instruction in everything from photography to painting to printmaking.

“Baristas, our signature coffee bar, serves up illy® espresso and coffee and fresh pastries made daily. Intimate spaces throughout the ship provide relaxing escapes. Spacious accommodations in every category showcase luxurious designer touches and lavish bathrooms.

“Notably, the on board experience continues to exude that comfortable familiarity guests have come to cherish. We have retained everything guests appreciate about our ships and continue to aim even higher. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.”

    And, on April 28th, the Caribbean Princess (Registered in Bermuda) will be docking at West End. The Caribbean Princess (Princess Cruise Lines) will be visiting Bermuda while en-route to Southampton during a Trans-Atlantic crossing from Fort Lauderdale Florida, USA. And we’ll be aboard. Haven’t visited your wonderful Island since 1995 and we are so looking forward to returning.

  2. With ships in Port along with other activities that are taking place around the Island it’s starting to look a lot like summer :-)
