Oceania Cruise Ship Arrives A Day Early

The cruise ship Oceania Regatta arrives at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday in Frederiksted – one day earlier than her scheduled time of arrival – for a rare overnight stay, according to Kenn Hobson, executive director of the Virgin Islands Port Authority

"This is fantastic news for the merchants, tour operators and other tourist related businesses in St. Croix during the already busy holiday season," Hobson said.

Oceania Regatta changed its itinerary due to inclement weather at other scheduled ports of calls. The ship brings 684 passengers and 400 crew members for an overnight stay on St. Croix and will depart at 5 p.m. Thursday as scheduled.

Hobson reminded the community that public access to the Ann E. Abramson Marine Facility is restricted during the time a ship is in port.
