OPPOSITION LEADER WEIGHS-IN ON CRUISE SECTOR GAINS

While Opposition Leader Philip J. Pierre lauds the growth in the cruise sector, he has recommended exploring other cruise ports around the island.

Pierre provided some tips on improving the industry to radio 100 “drive-by” show host Russel Lake. In 2017, the Caribbean tourism organization indicated that the Saint Lucia’s cruise ship arrivals increased by 6.3% over the previous year.

Year to date, the cruise sector has recorded a 21.1 percent increase. Pierre also floated the idea of creating a custom-made Saint Lucia garment to enhance the tourism product.

The Opposition Leader also touted the expansion of the Point Seraphine berth. He congratulated the Allen-Chastanet led Administration and SLASPA on the project.
