Caribbean cruise port 'to benefit from green energy'

Date Posted: 25 Jul 2008
Category:
New geothermic energy that has been discovered in the Caribbean is expected to boost an island's tourism capacity, it has been reported.

According to TravelMole, the renewable energy discovery on the island of Nevis, a popular port of call for ships on Caribbean cruises, will "transform" tourism in the region.

The supply of energy was located in the Nevis volcanic mountain range and supply from the source is anticipated to begin in early 2009.

Drilling has already commenced in the Spring Hill area for steam which will then be used to power generators in an environmentally friendly way.

Energy from the discovery can also be used to help provide a supply to Nevis' neighbouring island St Kitts.

St Kitts is located in the eastern Caribbean and those on Caribbean cruises to the area are advised to wear light summer clothing thanks to the island's clement climate.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
