Representatives of Royal Caribbean International company visited the Passenger Port of St. Petersburg

28 January 2020

On January 27, 2020 representatives of Royal Caribbean International, Jorge Delgado, Vice President on Business Development and Chris Caravos, Hotel Director, paid a working visit to the Passenger Port of St. Petersburg.  During the visit, the guests got acquainted with the port infrastructure and development plans of the territory adjacent to the port.


The business meeting was held with the participation of port management and top management of Inflot Worldwide Rus, LLC. The main issues for discussion at the meeting were the possible conditions for the project implementation to create a departing and arriving cruise port on the basis of the Passenger Port of St. Petersburg, as well as options for using the adjacent territory as part of the development of the Center for International Cruise Tourism in St. Petersburg. Representatives of Royal Caribbean International confirmed their interest in carrying out cruises departing from the Passenger Port. However, to implement this initiative, it is necessary to modernize the port's infrastructure and amend the existing procedures for customs control and registration of baggage of cruise passengers.


It should be noted that this was not the first visit of the cruise line to the port, which confirms the seriousness of the intentions of the representatives of Royal Caribbean International regarding cooperation. At the previous meeting, the parties discussed the prospects of setting up new large size vessels of the Quantum and Freedom class at the berths of the Passenger Port of St. Petersburg. This time they also addressed this issue, discussing the importance and necessity of reconstructing water infrastructure of the port, including the access channel. Representatives of Royal Caribbean International also shared their modern experience in the use of new technologies in the registration of passengers on ships.


Following the negotiations, the parties agreed on the implementation of the so-called “interporting” or, in other words, boarding of tourists on the Royal Caribbean International cruise line vessels in the Passenger Port of St. Petersburg with the aim of starting of cruises. A pilot project of interporting will allow to analyze the current state of the port infrastructure for the full implementation of the cruise start and end port on the basis of the Passenger Port of St. Petersburg. We remind you that currently the Passenger Port is a transit port.
