Pulmantur Monarch's Call on Port of Kingston
Monica Caceres (left) and mother, Teda Caceres (right), visitors to the island from Latin America, pause from their shopping for a photo opportunity with Kerrian Foster, Craft Vendor at Kingston Craft Market. The two were among the 2,700 passengers aboard the Pullmantur Monarch, which called on the Port of Kingston on Tuesday (Dec 6). The Kingston Craft Market, managed by the Urban Development Corporation (UDC), provided the visitors with a wide variety of Jamaican branded memorabilia from which to choose before transiting to other attractions within Kingston, St. Catherine and St. Ann. The cruise line is the first to dock in Kingston in three years, and marks a milestone for stakeholders engaged in sustained efforts to revitalize downtown Kingston as a prime centre for economic and recreational activity.
