By: Newsroom SXM
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.
Wonder of the Seas is Royal Caribbean's newest cruise ship which began with its inaugural sailing on March 4 out of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, operating seven-night cruises.
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. Mr. Pelgrim is quoted as saying "It's with great pride that we can say that the Port of St. Maarten is one of the only to be able to accommodate all 5 "Oasis Class" vessels from Royal Caribbean", "We definitely have an edge and the future looks bright", added George Pelgrim.
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.
