When the Harmony of the Seas recently called at the island, Lindsay F.P. Grant, the minister of tourism, international trade, industry and commerce, met with Royal Caribbean CEO and president Michael Bayley.

Bayley’s visit was said to be his first to St. Kitts.

"It was truly an honor to meet and welcome Michael Bayley to our beautiful island," said Minister Grant in a prepared statement. "The relationship between St. Kitts and the Royal Caribbean cruise line is a strong one. We listen carefully to their advice and recommendations, without losing focus on addressing the wider development needs of our destination, ensuring that local people share in the benefits of our expanding cruise sector."

Two Royal Caribbean ships, the Oasis and Harmony of the Seas, have been calling at St. Kitts during the summer season.
