So says Acting Chief Executive Officer of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority, Ms. Carolyn James.
Speaking an a plaque exchange ceremony to mark the inaugural call by the Carnival Conquest, Miss James said St. Kitts can provide an authentic Caribbean experience that clearly appeals to cruise passengers.

“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.
