Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, said:

“We are very excited to get back home to our friends in St. Thomas. The Caribbean is our family, having cruised there for nearly 50 years, and the long-standing relationships created in all this time are unwavering.

With the 3,100 passenger Adventure of the Seas calling at the island this will open the gates for further cruise ships which will help get St. Thomas back to business and grow the economy.

The cruise line has also announced that ships are expected to return to other Hurricane hit islands of Puerto Rico and St. Maarten by the end of November. All cruise ships are expected to make regular calls to all three islands by December 1.
