St. Kitts Expects Cruise Arrivals to Increase Significantly in 2008

The St. Kitts Tourism Authority recently announced that its cruise arrivals will increase by more than 70 percent next year. This increase is largely due to the addition of the Carnival Destiny, which will be the first cruise ship to call at St. Kitts on a weekly year-round basis. The Carnival Destiny will bring 130,000 passengers next year to St. Kitts, beginning with its first call on January 10, 2008.
