The Brilliance of the Seas cruise ship, from Royal Carribbean Cruise Line, will make a refueling stop in San Juan Bay this coming Monday, the executive director of the Puerto Rico Ports Authority (APPR), Joel A. Pizá, announced today Batiz.
“Royal Caribbean executives confirmed to us today of the stop that the Brilliance of the Seas will make in San Juan Bay this coming Monday, between 6:00 am and 6:00 pm, during which the cruise will refuel and of food. The Brilliance does not bring passengers and its 85 crew members will not go ashore, although they have been quartered aboard the cruise for more than 21 days, ”said Pizá Batiz.
The Port Minister highlighted that recently the Fiscal Oversight Board (JSF) approved the amendment to the APPR regulation, which allows granting a special rate for those cruises without passengers that make extended stops, or “lay ups” at our docks.
“The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has not yet given the go-ahead for cruise lines to restart operations with passengers in the ports of the United States and its territories. However, Puerto Rico and the Ports Authority are prepared and open to receive and supply cruise ships as they prepare to resume operations with passengers in the coming months, ”concluded Pizá Batiz.
