We’re Getting a New Ferry & You Can Name It!

Hello everyone, and happy Monday! Today’s story is short and simple. The US Virgin Islands is getting a brand new ferry, and you can help name it!

From what I hear, the new ferry will be larger and will have the ability to accommodate 300 passengers, which is a few dozen more than the current ferries can handle. It will also have a dedicated space for passengers’ luggage, so it will no longer be stored in the back of the boat, and hopefully it will be stored out of the elements.

It’s been about eight years since we received two new ferries to shuttle passengers between Cruz Bay and Red Hook. Those ferries are aptly named Cruz Bay 1 and Red Hook 1.

So, what do you think the new ferry should be named? If you have a suggestion, email it to Suggestions must be received by March 22nd.
