Monday, December 12, 2005 - Prime Minister Dr Kenny D. Anthony left the state yesterday for Miami for discussions with officials of two of the top cruise lines in the USA, Carnival Cruise Lines and Royal Caribbean International.


For some time now, Government has been concerned about the reduced number of cruise ships visiting St. Lucia and the Prime Minister is particularly anxious that Carnival resumes calling at Port Castries.


The Prime Minister hopes to discuss with the companies, not only increasing the number of calls to St. Lucia, but also how to increase the number of stay-over visitors from the cruise sector.


Prime Minister Anthony is also anxious to find ways and means of increasing passenger spending and the disembarkation rate of passengers to St. Lucia.


The Prime Minister also hopes to discuss with the cruise lines opportunities for increasing the number of St. Lucians employed on the cruise ships belonging to the two top US cruise lines that call in the Caribbean.


The Prime Minister is accompanied by officials of the St. Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority and he returns to the island on Wednesday.
