Royal Caribbean is making its return to Port St Maarten on Sunday, Dec. 16.
The visit by Royal Caribbean’s Grandeur of the Seas will be the first Royal ship to visit the destination since Hurricane Irma.
Grandeur’s visit will kick off weekly port calls to St Maarten from Royal Caribbean ships.
Activities are also planned throughout the day on the Boardwalk near the Captain Hodge Wharf in Philipsburg that includes a steel band; a mini-parade with the Youmay Drum Band, and DJ entertainment, organized by the St Maarten Tourist Bureau.
The remaining cruise ship calls for December are: December 19, 25, 26, 27, and 31. There will be two ships in port on Christmas day and three on Boxing day.
