Port St. Maarten is expected to welcome its one millionth passenger to the shores of the country on 13th September 2018, as the port continues to exceed projections made following the destruction of the facility after the passing of Hurricane Irma just over a year age.

Between January and September 6, the Port received 972,000 cruise passengers, St. Maarten Tourist Bureau Director Mayling Chun told reporters at a stakeholder’s press conference held at Oyster Bay Beach Resort. Chun said Port St. Maarten has reported “good progress” in the industry.  The Port said it has been operating above its projected figures at 12 to 15 per cent and was engaged in continuous discussions and support with industry partners.
