VIPA Announces Changes to Crown Bay Cruise Ship Schedule
Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s Odyssey of the Seas has canceled its inaugural call today, December 29, 2021, to St. Thomas, announced Virgin Islands Port Authority Executive Director Carlton Dowe. The ship was scheduled to berth at the Austin “Babe” Monsanto Marine Terminal in Crown Bay at 11 a.m. and a Plaque and Keys Ceremony was scheduled for 2 p.m. The visit and ceremony have been postponed until the ship’s next call to St. Thomas, which will be announced.
The cruise ship schedule for the Monsanto Marine Terminal has also been updated, said Dowe. Norwegian Cruise Line’s Seven Seas Splendor will berth in Crown Bay on Thursday, December 30, 2021. The West Indian Company (WICO) Dock has three ships scheduled on Thursday; therefore, the Splendor which normally berths at WICO will berth instead in Crown Bay. The new schedule also includes an additional call from the Celebrity Millennium on Thursday, December 30, 2021. All cruise ship schedules for the territory are posted on VIPA’s website: https://www.viport.com/schedules-seaports.
