Captain Rob Hempstead and Mr. George Pelgrim, told Port St. Maarten Group (PSG) management, key industry stakeholders, and port dignitaries during a small gathering at the pier where Wonder of the Seas was docked, that "St. Maarten is a premier port destination."

The world's largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean's 5th Oasis Class, Wonder of the Seas, is the world's largest cruise ship.  It made its inaugural port call on Monday, March 21.

Port St. Maarten Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Alexander Gumbs is looking forward to the port call, adding that the cruise industry is on a path to rebounding and industry partners remain committed with many ships debuting this year and those to come.  After hurricane Irma and the Covid-19 pandemic, the port has withstood challenges that have never been seen before in St. Maarten.

These itineraries will continue to run through April until the vessel heads to Europe in May for summer Mediterranean cruises.

Wonder of the Seas will return in November to Florida for Caribbean cruises.

With neighboring islands like the U.S.V.I. having growth spurts in their cruise line ambitions, it's important for St. Maarten to create innovative advancements to its tourism product.  Royal Caribbean has agreed to carry 140,000 cruise ship passengers to the U.S. Virgin Islands in the upcoming cruise season.
