Royal Caribbean’s Adventure of the Seas cruise ship will make an unexpected call Saturday at Ann Abramson Pier in Frederiksted, the Tourism Department announced in a press release. The ship will be in port from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Adventure of the Seas has a capacity of 5,000 passengers and crew.
Tourism will offer entertainment at the port to welcome passengers to St. Croix.
The V.I. Port Authority said in its press release that it did not know the reason for the change in the ship’s itinerary.
“This is great news for our tourist vendors, tour operators, restaurants and shops on St. Croix – and for the economy on a whole,” Port Authority Director Carlton Dowe said.
He said the Port Authority continues to welcome new ship calls to St. Croix.
