In St. Kitts and Nevis, cruise tourism seems to show no sign of sluggishness, as two cruise lines have already been added to St. Kitts in October, along with four additional inaugural calls will be made to this superlative destination by the end of this month and in early December: On Oct. 30, the MV Zenith will make its introductory call to St. Kitts along with Viking Sky on Nov. 3; Norwegian Sun on Nov. 24, and the MSC Fantasia on Dec. 1st respectively.
The first call was made by Sirena of Oceania Cruises to Port Zante Oct. 11th. On Oct. 25th, the Viking Sea made its first call.
Carlene Henry-Morton, the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Tourism was in the team of the Viking Sea to greet the captain and his shipmates to the island and welcome him to partake in a plaque exchange ceremony. She explained that the people of the federation were quite contented to welcome the cruise ship. She also said that her ministry is thankful to have Viking Ocean Cruises on the itinerary.
The MS Viking Star – the main ship of the Viking Star-class of cruise ships and the first ever ship controlled by Viking Ocean Cruises, a division of Viking Cruises – made its opening call at Port Zante, Basseterre, St. Kitts, Oct. 25, last year.
