Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas, the world’s largest passenger cruise ship, has made its final stop in St. Kitts and Nevis on August 16 for the 2016/17 cruise season.
The cruise ship’s visit saw the arrival of approximately 6,780 passengers to St.Kitts and Nevis’ shores. This marks the sixth time the cruise ship has visited the island this season, the first time being in May.
Visits to the island of this nature are paramount to both the federation and the island’s tourism sector, St. Kitts and Nevis Minister of Tourism Lindsay Grant said.
He highlighted the island’s ability to attract cruise ships catering to more than 6,000 passengers was a testament to the island’s great customer service and unique tours and excursions available within the tourism sector.
Harmony of the Seas sailed its maiden voyage in May 2016. The ship, whose time is split between the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, hosts more than 2,000 employees, with a total capacity of almost 10,000.
