St Lucia will soon be able to welcome Royal Caribbean’s Quantum-class cruise ships.
The expansion project at “dolphin berth” at island’s Pointe Serafine Cruise Terminal in Castries is due to be completed in the middle of January.
According to Saint Lucia Air & Sea Ports Authority, the first Quantum-class ship, Anthem of the Seas, will visit St Lucia on January 13.
It is another step for the fast-growing cruise sector of St Lucia, which saw a 19.4% increase in cruise passenger arrivals last year.
The port will be able to accommodate a couple of Quantum-class vessels simultaneously when completed.
