USVI among one of top 10 honeymoon destinations

Commissioner of Tourism Pamela C. Richards is pleased to announce that Modern Bride magazine recently named the U.S. Virgin Islands - St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas - among the top 10 honeymoon destinations in the world.

“We always have believed that our destination is the perfect romantic backdrop for honeymooners,” Commissioner Richards stated. “It is an honour to have one of the world`s top bridal publications provide an objective endorsement of what we have always known. This opinion poll of travel agents is highly respected in the honeymoon industry and a good endorsement of our overall tourism product.”
Modern Bride`s 7th Annual Honeymoon Survey polled top travel agents and asked them to list what they consider the 50 most seductive destinations in the world. The USVI ranked in 10th place among the top 50 destinations. The USVI was chosen because of the laid back feeling of the islands, the award-winning nightlife and the ease of travel to the destination as a U.S. Territory. The Caribbean ranked high on the list of destinations, as honeymooners are able to create lasting memories whether at an island`s unique resort or on one of the beautiful, secluded white-sand beaches. The 7th Annual Honeymoon Survey appears in the October/November issue of Modern Bride magazine, which is currently on newsstands.
