On Monday Premier Dr. the Hon. D. Orlando Smith announced that Government is looking forward to the fall season when Disney cruise will be joining Norwegian cruise and other cruise lines calling on the BVI.
Hon. Smith declared: “We’re delighted that Disney has already started work on the training of the first group of Villa Owners, preparing the way for the best visitor experience.”
The 2016 cruise season begins in October and Disney has already commenced promoting the BVI as part of its Eastern Caribbean cruises for the season. In fact, the company began destination booking since 30 October 2014.
In 2013 Minister for Communications and Works, Hon. Mark Vanterpool said that the Territory will be accepting calls from the Disney dream class ships that are expected to make the territory a primary stop. Hon. Vanterpool added that the new pier would be moving the Virgin Islands from B class to A class, as the Disney Dream Class are more high end vessels.
