Finance Minister Colm Imbert says claims that the arrival of the Galleons Passage vessel will be delayed by a month are an exaggeration.
The minister was responding to information posted by Sea Transport in China.
The US$17.38 million vessel is currently docked in Honolulu.
It is expected to journey to Panama and then to Cuba to be outfitted with seats before traveling to Trinidad.
The final sailing is expected to take around 10 days which would means the vessel could arrive in the first week of May.
However, when contacted by CNC3, Minister Imbert stated that he had to check-in with Nidco, but labelled the claims being made as 'speculative'.
