As the Virgin Islands continues to reopen its borders in a phased manner, there is still no word as to when cruise tourism is likely to resume as, apart from the Virgin Islands Government having to give the go ahead to receive cruise ships, cruise liners are also awaiting word from health authorities in various countries as to when they would be allowed to resume service.
Speaking at a press conference called by Tortola Pier Park Limited (TPPL) on Friday, July 10, 2020, Chief Executive officer of the Cyril B. Romney Tortola Pier Park, Mr Vance M. Lewis said no date is yet in hand for the resumption of cruise tourism.
“Essentially they (Cruise liners) are awaiting guidance from the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] because the guidance changes based on what we are seeing in the south eastern USA. And so far the guidance has actually changed to push things back,” Mr Lewis said.
He knows nothing and thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career.
