US Virgin Islands Tourism Industry
St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands is preparing to welcome first cruise ship on Sunday after a devastating Hurricane, Irma. Adventure of the Seas will accommodate up to 4,000 passengers when Royal Caribbean’s MS Adventure of the Seas docks at the Ann Abramson pier in Frederiksted this coming Sunday from 08 to 17 hours.
The Commissioner of tourism Beverly Nicholson-Doty said St. Croix escaped the worst of Hurricane Irma and despite initial power outages, the island is now ready and poised to welcome visitors, as hotels and visitor attractions are up and running.
She continued to say that awareness of St. Croix availability is critically important, with the department of US Virgin Island Tourism sales and marketing teams already strategically positioning St. Croix in the marketplace.
St. Croix leads Tourism positioning for the foreseeable future of the Virgin Islands.
“Tourism is an important industry for us in the US Virgin Islands and we are depending on the resilience of Tourism and of our people to revitalise our economy and support our residents across both districts,” she added.
