Today, P&O cruise vessel “Arvia” made its inaugural cruise call to St. Kitts. The Authority continues to honor inaugural cruise calls, representing the consistent growth of the destination’s cruise sector. Arvia boasts of its excel class ship title operating with a capacity of 5,200 guests and 1,800 crew members. The cruise vessel measures 345m, 184,700 tons, and has 15 guest decks while offering a swim-up bar, fine-dining restaurants, multiple aqua-zones, and even an onboard blending rum class.
“I am pleased to welcome Arvia to St. Kitts on its maiden cruise call,” shared Honourable Marsha T. Henderson, Minister of Tourism. “An inaugural P&O cruise vessel venturing to our destination is a direct result of recently held meetings with P&O in the latter period of 2022. These meetings heavily focused on strengthening our partnerships with the cruise lines to ensure that our industry can continue to thrive and develop. Expanding our cruise-line partnerships is paramount to providing job opportunities for our people, and we continue to take the necessary steps to achieve such.”
