|The cruise sector is growing and our people must take full advantage of the available opportunities, said the Minister of Tourism, The Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant.
“It is exciting to see our local people being creative and focused in doing business in this vibrant sector,” Minister Grant said. “With four ships in today I cannot stress enough how important it is that we continually strive for excellence, as it is the memory of the experience that we provide that will ensure our visitors return to our lovely island, to all of our benefit.”
Cruise ships will make a total of 391 calls to St. Kitts in this cruise season, with 16 new ships arriving here for the very first time.
In the last cruise season (2015-’16) cruise ships made 373 calls to St. Kitts, bringing 913,716 passengers, which was the most ever in a cruise season. This cruise season (2016-’17) is expected to be another record breaking season with a projected arrival of 1,125,927 passengers.
