Royal Caribbean Cruise Ships to Dock in St Kitts

It has truly been complicated recently with cruise lines suspending operations and ports remaining closed to keep their citizens safe from any potential outbreak. Royal Caribbean is lucky enough to have approval from the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis to allow two its cruise ships to dock from August 19.

The Minister of Tourism has said that the cruise line reached out to them to allow Vision of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas to use Port Zante.

Minister of Tourism, Lindsay Grant, said:

“The health and the safety of our citizens, residents, and of our visitors remains our number one priority […] We have taken all the necessary health and safety protocols to ensure that St Kitts and Nevis remains safe.” Minister Grant noted. “This assistance represents the true nature of our people to support others in a time of need,” he added.

Each vessel has 70 crew members on board who are essential to keep the ship operational and maintained ready for when cruises resume. They will be allowed to disembark the ships after a 14-day quarantine onboard and receiving a negative test result at the end of that quarantine.

Crew members will have to observe social distancing and weak face masks when out and about in St Kitts. At the moment the Caribbean nation has zero cases of COVID-19 and the government is aiming to keep that.

it’s also good for local; businesses which have been missing the influx of thousands of cruise passengers since the suspension first started in March 2020.

According to our Cruise Ship Tracker, Vision of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas are just off the island of St. Maarten and now heading towards St Kitts. Both ships are part of the Vision-class with a gust capacity of around 2,000.
