Seven cruise vessels to be in port Thursday making it one of the busiest days of the season

Thursday, 18 December, will be one of the busiest days of the cruise tourism season for destination St. Maarten with seven cruise vessels in port with a combined 18,000 (approximately) cruise passengers.  This does not include crew, which could be an additional 8,000.

The smallest vessel will be Wind Surf of Windstar Cruises with over 300 passengers, to the largest, Freedom of the Seas with over 3,600.  Six of the vessels will be moored along the two cruise piers at the Dr. A.C. Wathey Cruise & Cargo Facility. Wind Surf will arrive early Thursday evening while the six other vessels arrive early in the morning.

These vessels are Regal Princess (3,500+), Norwegian Gem (2,400+), Celebrity Eclipse (2,900+), Costa Mediterranea (2,700+), Celebrity Summit (2000+) and the Freedom of the Seas.

Wherever residents see cruise passengers on Thursday, show them that true St. Maarten hospitality especially in light of the Christmas season.  Tourism is everybody’s business. Happy holidays.
