St Kitts is primed for a major cruise season in 2022-2023, one that will include an array of ships making their inaugural calls to Port Zante in Basseterre. 

Already this season, four ships have made their inaugural calls. 

That includes Seabourn Venture, Carnival Spirit, Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas and Ocean Explorer. 

A major inaugural visit comes next week when the current world’s largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean’s Wonder of the Seas, will call on St Kitts.

“It shows that we are working,” said St Kitts Tourism Minister Marsha Henderson. “We can’t sit in our small corner of this world and expect business to come to us.”

St Kitts has in recent years seen massive growth in the cruise sector, rising to become one of the most popular cruise destinations in the wider Caribbean. 

In a statement, St Kitts’ Tourism Minister said the wave of inaugural calls were a “clear signal of recovery in the tourism sector and cruise officials’ growing confidence in the destination’s tourism product.”

The growth in cruise tourism comes as St Kitts has seen tremendous buzz for its reimagined tourism identity centered around deeper, more experiential travel across the destination.
