Pro Divers is a popular diving excursion in St Kitts and many cruise ship passengers will book with them. The company doesn’t take bookings through the cruise line but does offer an easy way for visitors to book near the port.

Disney Magic is an 84,000 gross ton ship and can carry over 1,700 guests at double occupancy. As this is a developing story we will be updating this post once more details are known and confirmed.

Our prayers are with the man’s family and friends during this very difficult time. Please stay safe everyone on your next tour.
