The US Virgin Islands are happy with Royal Caribbean International these days. Recently, Royal Caribbean announced new Caribbean itineraries which include two additional ships regularly calling on the Virgin Islands and add back St. Croix as a port-of-call.
“The Virgin Islands has a wonderful relationship with Royal Caribbean, and that is reflected in the cruise line’s newest itineraries, which frequently call on the territory’s ports,” USVI Governor John P. de Jongh, Jr told Caribbean News Digital.
New are Jewel of the Seas that will visit St. Thomas during the 2013-2014 season, and Adventure of the Seas will call on St. Thomas and St. Croix on various voyages. The move makes for the cruise line’s largest deployment ever in the Caribbean region, up by 16 calls, eight on St. Thomas and eight on St. Croix.
Oasis and Allure of the Seas will continue to alternate seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries with stops in St. Thomas, while Freedom of the Seas’ Eastern Caribbean itinerary lists calls on St. Thomas.
