More Cruises to U.S. Virgin Islands

February 08, 1987

The U.S. Virgin islands of St Thomas, St. John and St Croix were visited by 678,94676 cruise ship passengers in 1986, an increase of 7.6% over the previous year.

Part of the reason for the increase is the new Crown Bay Dock at St. Thomas, which greatly expanded the harbor's capacity. At least 100 cruise ships are expected to dock at Crown Bay during the spring season.

In addition, an anticipated 569 cruise ships will dock at Charlotte Amalie this winter, and 100 more will stop at St. Croix, St. John also expects to benefit from the expanded tourism with cruise ships making weekly calls there this winter.
