St Barth’s port of Gustavia will soon be welcoming back cruise ships to the island, according to officials from the St Barth Tourism Committee.
The first ship to call on St Barth will be Crystal Serenity, which will sail in on Oct. 30.
While seven calls have been canceled in the wake of Hurricane Irma, a total of 17 ships will be calling on St Barth between now and Dec. 1.
Crystal Serenity will be followed by Regent Seven Seas’ Seven Seas Navigator, Oceania’s Insignia, Seabourn Quest, Silversea’s Silver Whisper, Crystal Esprit and Sea Dream, among others.
It’s a big boost for an island hit hard by Irma.
