The fifth ship in the Viking fleet arrived on Sunday.
Anthony Ottley, the interim CEO of the West Indian Company Limited was pleased to see the Viking Orion arrive at their dock this past Sunday wit approximately 400 guests.
“It is a pleasure to welcome Viking Orion to the U.S. Virgin Islands, “we have a safe, exciting and excellent in-port experience to offer her passengers, and we look forward to a relationship that goes from strength to strength,” he said.
USVI Commissioner of Tourism Joseph Boschulte also continues to be feel good about long-term forecasts for the eventual return of cruise ship arrivals to the territory.
“Slowly, but surely, we will get back to our pre-pandemic numbers, and we’re so grateful to our cruise partners for working with us to help us get there. We’re glad to see St. Thomas is still a top destination for cruise passengers, and we look forward to continuing to improve our cruise product,” he said.
