The World Famous Frigate Bay Strip will be undergoing major upgrades and enhancement shortly. That's according to Minister of Tourism Hon. Lindsay Grant.

Minister Grant mentioned the exciting new developments at the Frigate Bay Strip recently.

"The government considers that we have to do our part so we have just broken ground more or less not officially as yet but probably in the next month or so for the 7 million dollar infrastructure we are placing on the frigate bay strip in St. Kitts to enhance the tourism product," he informed.

Minister Grant said he expects plans will be put in place to "replenish and re-energize" the beaches in Frigate Bay and along the coastline which have been damaged by coastal erosion.

The Frigate Bay Strip is the hub of island nightlife, food and entertainment in the Federation. Bars and Restaurants such as Mr X' Shiggidy Shack, Vibes Bar and Grill, Boozies, Buddies, Inons', Breezes and the Docks are just some of the establishments currently housed at the strip.

The $7 Million upgrade will likely include a boardwalk, parking and amenities.

St. Kitts Cruise Season Off To a Thrilling Start

BASSETERRE (4th December 2013): The cruise season got off to an excellent start in November with close to 80,000 passengers expected to have come ashore from 28 cruise ship visits.

Last week Thursday St. Kitts received four cruise ships calls, bringing a total of about 8,188 passengers to the island.

Port Zante buzzed with economic flurry as dispatchers directed tourists to tour and taxi operators to go sight-seeing, sea and sun bathing on the beaches, snorkeling, sailing to Nevis, horseback riding, golfing, casino gambling, shopping, biking and wide variety of other adventures.

Projections for the 2013-2014 season call for more than 700,000 guests expected from 183 ship days.

Also, 15 new cruise ships will visit during this season. One of those ships, the Carnival Conquest, visited the destination in November with 3,700 passengers.

Acting Chief Executive Officer of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority, Carolyn James, went onboard the Carnival Conquest to personally welcome the Captain, and present him with a plaque to commemorate the inaugural visit.

"The inaugural call of the Carnival Conquest is a testament to the quality of the destination's expanding infrastructure," James said. "St. Kitts can provide an authentic Caribbean experience that clearly appeals to cruise passengers."

James pointed out that St. Kitts' survival as a cruise destination depends on the ability of tourism industry to deliver value-added services to guests on a sustainable basis.

"Our guests need to feel that we want them here,” James said. “Visitors need to feel welcomed, and the needs of each guest must be respected individually if they are to give our destination a good report. And I hasten to add that our guests do not expect to be harassed or want to experience angry situations and personal abuse."
