BASSETERRE, St. Kitts -- To attract return visitors, St. Kitts
Department of Tourism along with Tropical Shipping will offer
tokens good for off-season hotel stays and other discounts to
departing cruise passengers.
Typical offerings include seven-night stays for the price of
five as well as dinners, tours and amenities.
Tropical Shipping, an on-island shipping agent, is financing the
program and is working with hotels, restaurants, tour operators and
tourism-sector entities on the savings programs.
Dwyer Astaphan, tourism minister, said the idea was the
brainchild of Tropical Shipping president Rick Morrell.
According to Astaphan, most of the hotels on St. Kitts and
several on Nevis will participate in the program.
