This sounds like a major game changer for the southern area of St Lucia. Guess we better plan our first land-based visit soon...

From Caribbean Journal, October 23, 2019:

Royal Caribbean Cruises and Carnival Corporation have signed a memorandum of understanding with the government of Saint Lucia on a major new joint venture.

The two cruise giants will work together to manage Saint Lucia’s existing cruise pier and terminal in Castries — and design, construct and operate a new cruise port on the island.

The latter will be a brand-new cruise port in Vieux Fort on the southern tip of Saint Lucia able to accommodate the cruise industry’s largest, newest ships.

Wow, that will change Vieux Fort and hopefully make it a safe area? Vieux Fort is a very dangerous area for sailors and tourists at present.
