ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI– Although passengers will not be permitted ashore, passenger cruise ship Seabourn Odyssey will make a call to the Virgin Islands on July 21, 2021, and then on July 29, 2021.

This is according to the BVI Ports Authority (BVIPA), who said the Odyssey will be calling to White Bay, Peter Island.

“Passengers, as well as Crew, will not be permitted ashore, the BVIPA said in a press release today, July 19, 2021.

It said the Odyssey will be offering its ship ‘marina’ for guests to enjoy water-based activities in the harbour.

According to Porthole Cruise and Travel, the Seabourn Odyssey cruise will be starting and ending in Barbados.

It said “the Seabourn Odyssey explores the pastoral exoticism of the Caribbean on a virtual aquatic pathway through unspoiled islands. An itinerary to the British Virgin Island of Jost van Dyke, St Maarten, St Kitts, Dominica and St Lucia fulfills seven days of pampered indulgence. On alternate weeks other ports are added including Tortola, Antigua, Dominica and Grenada allowing for the option of back to back cruises."

According to the BVIPA, per local and ship protocols, all passengers and crew are required to be fully vaccinated and have a negative Covid-19 test prior to arrival to the Territory.

        If these passengers do not leave the ship why would they be paying a head tax?

    VISR needs to be out at White Bay, PI tomorrow to insure that all swimmers from this ship are towing the mandatory blue and white swimmers float. The last time a small cruise ship anchored off a BVI Island(Guana) a swimming passenger was killed by a passing motorboat in Jan. 2020! After that death VISR recommended towing this float while swimming.
