In a strategic move aimed at propelling Saint Lucia’s cruise tourism sector to new heights, the Authority responsible for the management of Seaports and Airports in Saint Lucia (SLASPA) has embarked on a ground-breaking partnership with Global Ports Holding (GPH), the world’s leading cruise port operator.

The recently signed concession agreement ushers in a transformative era for the island’s cruise tourism product, enhancing both infrastructure and visitor experience.

Recognizing the pivotal role cruise tourism plays within the Castries Harbor and comprising just over 10% of SLASPA’s business portfolio, this collaboration reinforces the commitment to fostering growth, innovation, and economic vitality.

The partnership seeks to leverage GPH’s unparalleled expertise to revitalize Saint Lucia’s cruise facilities, ensuring that they remain at the forefront of global standards.

Moreover, the partnership envisions a holistic approach to enhancing the cruise tourism experience.

GPH, in synergy with SLASPA and the Government of Saint Lucia, is committed to working collaboratively to elevate the physical infrastructure as well as the overall destination experience for cruise passengers.

SLASPA’s CEO, Mr. Daren Cenac, expressed his enthusiasm for the transformative partnership, stating, “This collaboration signifies a remarkable milestone in our journey to fortify Saint Lucia’s position as a premier cruise destination. GPH’s global expertise, combined with our local insights, creates a synergy that holds immense promise for the future of cruise tourism in our beloved country.”

As the partnership with GPH takes shape, SLASPA remains steadfast in its mission to drive sustainable economic growth, enhance visitor experiences, and cement Saint Lucia’s standing on the world stage as a leading cruise tourism destination.

  1. Imagine that, the kinda noise this government was making about ports holding. I want to believe peter josie have the cure for those cockroaches

  2. That’s all some of us are good at; “incite violence”.
    We better be careful what we ask for, because when it hit home we turn back and blame government and not realising our wishes has come back to haunt us.
