Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Dawn will dock in St. Croix three times this month, beginning Saturday, November 11. The ship’s arrival will mark the return of cruise ships to the largest of the US Virgin Islands after Hurricane Maria ripped through the island nearly two months ago.
“St. Croix looks forward to welcoming the passengers and crew of the Norwegian Dawn this weekend, and sharing with them our warm, resilient Crucian spirit,” said Commissioner of Tourism Beverly Nicholson-Doty. “We thank the countless Virgin Islanders and relief workers who have been working to restore power, clear roadways, prepare beaches and many of our key attractions so that visitors can experience our special Virgin Islands brand of Caribbean hospitality.”
Taxis, tour operators, and government agencies are working together to establish recommended routes for shore excursion tours. Norwegian Dawn will call in St. Croix on November 11, 18, and 25, and Viking Cruises’ Viking Sea will arrive on November 15 and 28. In December, Norwegian Gem, Seabourn Sojourn, and Seabourn Odyssey will also call in the tropical destination.
