The Saint Lucia Ministry of Tourism wishes each visitor a nice journey and invites them to take in Pigeon Island’s loveliness. During the welcome ceremony, the Ministry greeted the lovely vessel in La Place Carenage.
Due to its tropical climate, lush surroundings, and plenty of beaches and resorts, Saint Lucia is well-liked. A popular tourist destination is Sulphur Springs (in Soufrière). Visitors should bring their swimming trunks because the hot water runs through a pool at the hot springs complex.
Many people travel to Pigeon Island aboard cruise ships to take in the beauty of the Island while they travel through the ocean. Nearly 300 cruise ships visit Saint Lucia each year. The island nation is a well-liked vacation spot for cruise enthusiasts due to its gorgeous beaches, verdant rainforests, and volcanic terrain.
Earlier this week, a number of ships sailed into Saint Lucia to provide its passengers with an extraordinary voyage. The MSC Seaside arrived at Point Seraphine on January 6 with 4248 passengers and 1441 crew members eager to tour the Island.
The vessel paid a second visit to the Island and was warmly welcomed by the tourism ministry.
On December 27, 2022, the Costa Fascinosa and Zaandam of the Holland America line anchored in Port Castries with 3,000 people on board. Both ships participated in the event to exchange plaques and were warmly welcomed.
