Saint Lucia welcomes Seabourn Ovation cruise with 485 passengers


The 2022 – 2023 cruise tourism season is reaping the rewards of a targeted approach towards amplifying the maritime sector and its offerings. Another cruise line has added yet another vessel to its Saint Lucia Itinerary as of December 11.

Seaborne Ovation marked the 5th inaugural Cruise Call of the 2022 to 2033 Cruise Tourism Season, on Sunday, December 11, following berthing at Rodney Bay, bringing 485 passengers to the Destination.


Tourism Officials were tendered to the vessel, where a plaque exchange ceremony was held. The Captain says of his many Saint Lucia experiences, this recent call, greeted with warm weather and the backdrops of Pigeon Island, was by far the best.
