Local stakeholders preparing for "Wonder of the Seas" visit, hopeful for 2022/23 winter tourist season

The impending inaugural visit next month by the world's largest cruise ship, the "Wonder of the Seas," has heightened local stakeholders' optimism about the prospect of a positive 2022/23 winter tourist season, especially for cruise shipping.

Executive Director of Jamaica Vacations, Joy Roberts, says Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's decision to send their Oasis-class vessels to the island is an encouraging sign and a major boost for the local cruise industry.

Miss Roberts said this should be viewed within the context of Jamaica remaining a first-call destination and that the cruise company is satisfied with the country's handling of the COVID-19 crisis.

The Wonder of the Seas will arrive in Falmouth on December 1.

The 18-deck cruise ship has the capacity for 6,988 guests and 2,300 crew members.
