Saint Lucia, the Caribbean’s Leading Nature, and Adventure Tourism Destination,
eagerly anticipates the revival of cruise tourism as it sets sail into the 2023/24
season, from October 8th.
This season, which runs until September 2024, is poised to be dynamic and
prosperous, featuring over 400 cruise calls and a projected 600,000 cruise passengers.
The 2023/24 season holds significant promise with 19 inaugural calls, including the opening call by Carnival Venezia, reaffirming Saint Lucia’s position as a
premier Caribbean cruise destination.
Carnival Venezia’s call to Port Castries on October 8th is part of a 14-day fun Italian cruise, sailing from its homeport in New York.
Cruise tourism is a cornerstone of Saint Lucia’s economy, providing substantial employment opportunities and support to local businesses, and benefiting tour operators, artisans, taxi drivers, government and private sector service providers.
