St Lucia witnesses huge progress within cruise sector

Guests were surprised on arrival with gifts, including branded Saint Lucia keepsakes and return stay packages

Castries, St Lucia: Celebrity Millennium called into Port Castries, marking the resumption of the gradual and responsible reintroduction of cruise tourism to Saint Lucia on June 29, 2022. Noting the last port call was on March 16, 2020, the resumption of cruise service was a cause for celebration and illustrated our tremendous partnership with the cruise industry.

Guests were surprised on arrival with gifts, including branded Saint Lucia keepsakes and return stay packages.

On the economic front, by June 29, 8,386 individuals were re-employed within the tourism and cruise sector, including 1,500 taxi drivers, 135 tour guides, and some 115 vendors who were ready to welcome cruise visitors.

Today, one year later we celebrate just a part of the progress that has demonstrated our resiliency as a nation. Saint Lucia has thus far welcomed over 166,000 cruise visitors.

Thank you to all of our partners who made the North America Summer ‘Saint Lucia Style’ Roadshow a huge success. Your support across New York, Toronto, Dallas, and Miami reminds us that together we are stronger! 

2022 Carnival Queen Contestant Nadege Mc Lauren paid a courtesy call to her sponsor, Caribcation Saint Lucia, where she met the team rooting for her along the journey to the crowning night of July 7.
