St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Two more cruise ships are expected to visit the federation of St Kitts and Nevis in the coming weeks. 

Minister of Tourism Lindsay Grant said “World Navigator, formerly [known as] Mystic Cruises [will dock at Port Zante] on October 23. The vessel will then sail to Nevis on October 24. 

Viking Orion [will sail into St Kitts] on October 25, 2021. The Celebrity Equinox will not return for the rest of October but they will be back on November 7, 2021., when we anticipate an increase in our cruise traffic,” the Tourism Minister said. 

“We are expecting ships from both the American and European lines. In my next update, I promise to reveal much more about these ships. In fact, we hope to have the cruise schedule finalized by the end of the month”.  

Minister Grant was at the time speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, October 14 when he made the announcement.

Since the reopening of the cruise sector in the federation in July of this year, some 3,774 passengers came to our shores. Seabourn Odyssey docked with 1,151 and the Celebrity Equinox with 2,623.
