The Bridgetown Port is the major port of entry for approximately 90% of the goods used in the manufacturing and retail sectors in Barbados. A major part of its responsibility has been dedicated to supporting businesses in the import/export trade, a job that it carries out without any government subsidies, unlike the majority of Ports around the Caribbean.
All cruise vessels berth at the Bridgetown Port and it is currently the home porting hub for 17 vessels conducting full and partial exchanges of passengers.
