New cruise programme revealed by St Lucia with discounted hotels and special attractions

The brand new plan that was being developed to increase the number of tourist arrivals to St Lucia has just been unveiled by the country’s Tourism Board. The fresh initiative, which launches this month of November, consists of an attractive cruise programme that offers many incentives for tourists planning St Lucia holidays, such as marvellous discounts at participating hotels, attractions and shopping to book this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

This attractive cruise programme was made possible thanks to the collaboration between the Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority and the Saint Lucia Tourist Board. It is their goal to persuade not only the thousands of passengers who visit Saint Lucia every year to come back again but also to convince many more to participate in this relaxing holiday plan.

Nerdin St Rose, the VP of marketing and sales for the Saint Lucia Tourist Board is confident the initiative will bring the expected results as many tourists who have experienced unforgettable cruise holidays in St Lucia have expressed their wish to repeat this wonderful moment.

“Because of the limited amount of time they are able to spend on a shore excursion, cruise passengers have a somewhat limited view of the rich experiences an extended vacation on Saint Lucia offers,” he explained “Exit surveys have shown that there is interest in returning to Saint Lucia and we’re confident the incentives offered through this programme will encourage repeat visits from this highly valued group.”

The new programme offers passengers the opportunity of admiring the outstanding beauty of Saint Lucia’s green vegetation, sparkling beaches and splendid wildlife from the comfort of their cruise ship, while having access to delicious gastronomy, among other significant perks. The full details of this relaxing holiday option are centred on a promotional DVD which includes information on how to redeem the offers, and will direct cruisers to a new microsite, where they will be able to enter to win an all-inclusive holiday for two to the island.

Passengers will be distributed copies of this promotional DVD at the cruise ship pier at Pointe Seraphine and La Place Carenage Duty Free Shop Complex. The DVD will also present travellers with an overview of the island, information on fun activities and attractions as well as the diverse collection of St Lucia hotels and resorts.
