Beginning next week, St. Croix will host the newest and biggest cruise ship sailing the seas — Carnival Cruise Lines’ Triumph.
The megaship will make its first call at the Ann A. Abramson Marine Facility in Frederiksted on Nov. 3., according to Gordon Finch, executive director of the V.I. Port Authority. The ship has a capacity of 2,594 passengers.
Finch also said two other ships, the Splendor of the Seas and the Norwegian Majesty, will make calls on Nov. 1.
"This is excellent news for St. Croix," he said, "and points out the cruise industry’s interest in the island."
Finch said the Triumph is the first ship so far to make a "long-term commitment" to St. Croix, with biweekly visits through 2001.
Meanwhile, Finch asked people in the service industry "to keep in mind that first appearance is everything."
