New cost effective way for St. Lucians to cruise the Caribbean

Saint Lucians now have a cost effective way to cruise the Caribbean.

Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister with responsibility for tourism, Hon. Dominic Fedee, was on hand to greet the crew of the MV Adriana for its maiden call to Port Castries.

Accompanied by the Executive Chairperson of the Saint Lucia Tourist Board (SLTB) Agnes Francis, the minister said he was pleased at what this new development means for the people of Saint Lucia.

“Saint Lucians will now have a chance to board a cruise from Port Castries without having to fly to any destination or any other home port but right here from Saint Lucia,” he said.

Owner of the MV Adriana Captain Sergey Poniatovsky gave a background to the rationale of the visa-free Caribbean cruise.

“This ship is very unique, it is not like any other cruise ship. The ship is specifically for Caribbean islands, it is like a discovery vessel, with a family and private yacht atmosphere. We have an incredible itinerary which allows people living within these West Indies to have a synergy between islands. We have the opportunity to show each island nation as a destination and bring families together.”

In addition to touring the ship, the minister and the ship captain exchanged gifts to mark the momentous occasion.

Information on the MV Adriana Caribbean cruise can be found at the Saint Lucia Tourist Board and local travel agents.

      You’re a very negative person and you sound like the type that would sell his brother or sister. You’re, more likely, a coward as well.

    Darn it wish they make it affordable for the normal St Lucian so they can see , they have the best island in the Caribbean, and to the person on black people , you are totally wrong , I have found the people here in St Lucia as the most open friendlyies people I have ever met ,,and I have lived everywhere . So people of St Lucia don’t listen to the idiot about black people , cause I’m white and you people are the best please don’t change because of one white idiot .
