MV Britannia on 7th call to Tobago this season

The cruise ship MV Britannia has made its 7th and final call for the current cruise season to Tobago today, with 3,553 passengers on board.

The MV Britannia is the largest ship in P&O Cruises’ UK fleet with a capacity for 4,324 passengers and 1,398 crew members.

It made its maiden voyage to the island on December 14, 2017, and has brought 24,269 passengers to Tobago for the entire season.

Volcano site still closed to public

A small surface vent has started developing in the Devil’s Woodyard mud volcano which erupted on Carnival Tuesday spewing noxious gas and dirt some 20 feet in the air.

The volcano is still inaccessible to the public with police officers guarding the site 24/7.

In an interview, Stefon Harrypersad, a member the Geological Society of T&T, said the appearance of the vent is quite normal. He added that the GSTT team went back to the location on Saturday to continue mapping the site.

Virgin Atlantic's 'Island View' to help boost Tobago's tourism

Tobago is now on the map – virtually, that is – after the highly anticipated Island View project went live in January 2018.

A joint marketing initiative between Virgin Atlantic and the Division of Tourism, Culture and Transportation, Island View allows residents and visitors to capture, share and discover the various experiences Tobago has to offer through the use of Google Street View technology.

Island View was previously announced at World Travel Market in London on November 6, 2017.
