The cruise ship season ends today with the arrival of Jewel of the Seas. The Bahamas flagged vessel operated by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd of Miami was built in 2004 and has a capacity of 2,000 passengers.
This year's season unfolded about as expected, with few no shows due to weather or other reasons. Until final figures are in it will not be known if passenger counts lived up to expectations. On the whole my guess is that numbers might have been down a bit.
