Over the past few years, St.Vincent's prestigious cruise terminal has generated a lot of interest among vessel operators, resulting in a well sustained level of ship calls and passenger numbers.
Located only a few minutes from the heart of capital Kingstown, the cruise terminal has deepwater berths for two vessels, while the nearby ferry terminal has four berths with roll-on/roll-off ramps for inter-island vessels.
In addition to ship berths, the cruise facility has an attractive terminal building with a range of services for cruise passengers.
These services include:
Customs & Immigration
International telephone services
Restaurant and Bars
The cruise building has 300 meters of office space for cruise and tourism related businesses and there is ample parking for more than 50 taxis/miniuses plus a covered pick up/set down area and an additional quayside area for tour buses. Preorganised tours are popular with our visitors and the Department of Tourism has worked closely with local operators to ensure that passengers coming ashore in Port kingstown will find a fleet of comfortable, air conditioned coaches, together with competent guides, waiting to take them on a spectacular tour of the natural wonders of the island.
The cruise terminal has deepwater berths for two vessels. The larger berth to the north is designed for vessels up to 100,000 gross registered tons (GRT) and is 260 metres in length. The southern berth is suitable for vessels of up to 15,000 GRT and 100 metres in length.
