FECTAB Complaints About Losing Tours Not True, According to N.C.L.

Manuel Heredia Jr.

Minister of Tourism Manuel Heredia Junior also took on Federation of Cruise Tourism Association of Belize for their allegation that visitors who booked with NCL to call on Belize, did so because they had already made arrangements with independent tour operators in Belize City.  According to Heredia Junior, NCL disagrees with FECTAB and that all the noise about losing booked tours is simply not true.


Manuel Heredia Jr., Minister of Tourism

“It is easy.  Belize is a wonderful place to come.  The products that we have to offer is second to none, so if for some reason NCL decides that after this season they are not coming, they will have none of their ships coming to Belize, we are already looking at alternative companies, cruise companies that want to come to Belize.  But in Belize again, you have to realize that you are limited to no more than four a day right.  So there are other cruise lines that want to come to Belize so Belize will not lose anything.  We will be looking at, we will be having other cruise lines that will want to come to Belize and again the story that came up that some of those tour operators had bookings with Norwegian that were diverted over here, that was not true.  I verified with them and they would never have anyone buy a cruise tour that is destined for Belize to divert it to Harvest Caye.  That will not happen.  They are genuine business people who mean well and I am sure and I knew from the time they were talking that that cannot be so.”
