Royal Caribbean Cruises will add 15 port stops in St. Maarten in 2020 aboard the Freedom of the Seas, according to a statement, bringing an additional 68,000 guests to the island during off-peak months.
Traditionally, the St. Maarten vacation destination experiences its peak in visitor arrivals between December and March.
Between May and December, there is a reduction in those visitor arrival numbers that impact the island’s tourism-based economy.
Additional Royal Caribbean guest arrivals during the May to December period help moderate the highs and lows of St. Maarten’s tourism season fluctuations.
