Quantum of the Seas visit to St Thomas will break records for the island
When Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas visits St. Thomas on Tuesday, it will be a record breaking day on the ship's maiden voyage to the island.
On Tuesday, a Quantum and Oasis-class ship will be docked at the same time. In total, five cruise ships will be in port, including Oasis of the Seas and Quantum of the Seas.
St. Thomas saw a record breaking day of passengers last Wednesday when 20,000 visitors came to the island and Tuesday should break that record.
Tourism Commissioner Beverly Nicholson-Doty said to prepare they have opened the public restrooms next to the new Tourism office location in town by the USO building and are in communication with the V.I. Police Department and other government agencies.
The department's greeters will be out in full force, leaving the Crown Bay and Havensight areas to have a presence throughout the island.
"The greeters will be out on the streets," she said. "You'll see the bright purple shirts all over town on Tuesday."
