Last fall, the British Virgin Islands were devastated by hurricanes and the port of Tortola is still continuing it’s recovery efforts. The summer itinerary for the Disney Cruise Line was supposed to include a stop in Tortola during its 7-night sailings, but instead re-routed to other ports in the Eastern Caribbean, including St. Maarten. And it still appears they will extend their hiatus on Tortola through August 25th.
Instead of the scheduled stop in Tortola, the Disney Fantasy will spend a day in St. Maarten. The Eastern Caribbean itinerary also includes stops in St. Thomas/St. John and Castaway Cay.
Officials with the Government Information Services in the British Virgin Islands say that they are now “ready to receive the influx of visitors who will come via the major cruise lines.”
Russell Daya, Director of Port Operations and Developments for Disney, said of Tortola, “we have every confidence in your government’s efforts in restoring the destination to a higher standard than previously…and we look forward to support you.”
The Disney Fantasy’s first visit back to Tortola is scheduled for August 28th.
