The luxury cruise ship Le Bellot made its inaugural call to St. Kitts and Nevis on Saturday, marking a significant milestone for the destination’s tourism sector.
St Kitts’ Tourism Authority said the vessel’s arrival is expected to further enhance the island’s reputation as a premier Caribbean destination.
Ellison “Tommy” Thompson, the CEO of the St Kitts Tourism Authority, expressed his delight in the vessel’s inaugural call, saying: “We are thrilled to have Le Bellot making its first-ever call to St Kitts. This marks a pivotal moment for our tourism industry, as it will clearly signal that the island has so much to offer visitors beyond its natural beauty. We look forward to welcoming many other upscale cruise ships in the future, as we continue to promote St Kitts as the ultimate destination of choice in the Caribbean.”
Le Bellot, owned by international cruise line Ponant, boasts 92 staterooms and suites, a spa, and two restaurants, accommodating up to 184 guests and 118 crew members.
Le Bellot is set to make multiple calls on St Kitts throughout this year’s cruise season.
