St Kitts Tourism rose to new heights when 6 cruise ships visited the island on Thursday with total maximum capacity of over 16,000 passengers.
Minister of Tourism The Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant said having six cruise ship in one day was a remarkable achievement for St. Kitts.
“This is indeed an unprecedented event in our cruise sector,” Minister Grant said.
“Never before has St. Kitts ever received six cruise ships in one day, and is a testament to the hard work my Ministry has been doing to establish St. Kitts as a top cruise destination in the Caribbean."
Minister Grant added that every resident of St. Kitts must strive to be courteous, and remember that a smile goes a long way in making our guests feel welcome.
Minister Grant advised the taxi and tour operators, vendors, retail outlets, restaurants, bars and the various attractions to prepare for the arrival of the six cruise ships.
“I urge stakeholders in the cruise sector to take full advantage of the calls, but also not take this impressive growth for granted. Cruise sector growth for St. Kitts will only be sustained if we continue to work hard while maintaining productive cruise industry partnerships and giving each visitor the best possible on-island experience,” Minister Grant said.
