Openings - St. Kitts and Nevis

Basseterre, St. Kitts- Carnival Cruise Lines will begin sending one of its large ships, the 'Spirit'-class 'Carnival Legend,' to St. Kitts starting in 2007 and continuing for the rest of the 2007/2008 season.

- On May 20, Warner Park, a Cricket stadium and sporting facility, officially opened. The stadium had been redeveloped to meet the International Cricket Council's standards and the first One-Day International match in St. Kitts.

- The St. Kitts and Nevis Federal Assembly approved the acquisition of 852 acres for the purpose of a 5-star tourism development in the South East Peninsula. The entire development is expected to start later this year after court conflicts concerning the land purchase have been settled. Overall, it is a 20 year project.

Charlestown- The Newfound Group International, a Canada-based company, gave a partial payment of $10 million towards the purchase of lands at Pinney's Estate where a 5-star hotel is to be constructed. The 150-room hotel will feature 400 upscale villas and an 18-hole golf course.

- All of Nevis's ports will be outfitted with closed-circuit television monitoring systems by the end of July 2006. The security upgrade is to keep up regulation with the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code for maritime security. The need for the upgrade parallels the recent terrorism threats in the U.S. and the increasing amount of U.S. visitors in Nevis's ports.
