Carnival Returns to St. Thomas and St. Maarten in January

By ,   October 24, 2017 ,   Cruise Industry

Carnival Cruise Line is taking it slow about returning to hurricane-ravaged St Thomas and St Maarten.

Next month Royal Caribbean resumes stops at the still-recovering destinations, but Carnival president Christine Duffy last week said that the line would wait until January to restart calls.

In a letter to clients posted on the website of Carnival, Duffy set the beginning of 2018 as a time frame for the return to St Maarten and St Thomas. She also set a hard date of November 30 for the resumption of calls at the hit by hurricane port of San Juan, and said visits to Grand Turk would resume in less than a couple of weeks.
