What is your favorite charity?
Today is Giving Tuesday. As the official shopping season for the holidays begins, it’s good to first consider other people or organizations that are in need. For instance, St. Jude provides children with terminal cancer medical treatment at no expense to their families. What is your favorite charity of choice? Share it with us today. We will choose one of your suggestions as our charitable recipient for Giving Tuesday.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving from your friends at Love City Car Ferries, Inc.
We are thankful for your patronage and business partnership throughout the year.

Freedom is not free. We know this, but at times we forget. Thanks to all Veterans who served and gave so much so that we could have the freedom to live our daily lives. God bless you.
November 1st is Liberty Day also known as Bull and Bread Day in honor of the late and great Virgin Islander, David Hamilton Jackson.
Mr. Jackson fought for our rights on many fronts. He was a civil rights activist, labor leader, judge, newspaper editor and so much more. Traveling as far as Denmark as a tireless advocate for local rights while we were under the Danish flag, he organized the territory’s first free newspaper and its first labor union. His efforts for equality for his people did not stop when we were transferred to American rule; he also lobbied for US citizenship.
One has to wonder what he would do if he was alive today. Nevertheless we continue to pay him homage by remembering his legacy and striving to emulate his love for his home and its people.

Friday, October 25, 2019 is Hurricane Thanksgiving Day in the United States Virgin Islands. It is our day to say thanks for being spared the ravages of hurricanes during the past hurricane season. We have a lot to be grateful for. In celebration, Love City Car Ferries, Inc. will be giving out free pizza, snacks, and t-shirts on Hurricane Thanksgiving Day between the hours of 10 AM and 4:00 PM, on board the M/V Grand Vic. It is our way of saying thanks to God and to share our happiness with our fellow customers because we all made it through this season. See you on board!
'Known as a counter celebration to the infamous Columbus Day, Indigenous Peoples’ Day is now celebrated in many parts of the Americas. Many now recognize the fact that Christopher Columbus murdered and enslaved the people he found in this hemisphere of the world.
As West Indians and Virgin Islanders, many of us have Indigenous heritage and ancestry. As a result, we celebrate today October 14, 2019 as Indigenous Peoples' Day and we commemorate the contributions and sacrifices of the Caribs, Arawaks, Taino, Ciboney and all of the original people of our beloved Virgin Islands and their descendants.
Summer is almost over, especially with Labor Day just ending. We just wanted to say thank you for being a wonderful Vic Sea Miles Club Customer. A select few have been chosen for a free round trip.

Reminder: Love City Car Ferries, Inc operates the Vic branded black and white car ferries. If the vessel does not have Vic in its name, you have boarded another company’s vessel. We do not operate all the car ferries in the Virgin Islands, only the Vic branded ones. Keep our brand in mind if you desire to do business with us. Thanks for your time and have a wonderful day.

Update on our fleet: Love City Car Ferries, Inc. owns 3 car ferries in the Virgin Islands, M/V Capt Vic, M/V Island Vic and M/V Grand Vic. As many of you may already know, the M/V Island Vic was destroyed in the storms. Minor repairs on this vessel is currently being done. Major repairs will require the vessel to be moved to a shipyard. The good news is that that M/V Capt Vic is finally at dry-dock for its bi-annual inspection.
The M/V Grand Vic is fully operational and therefore available for your transportation needs between St. Thomas and St. John. Please keep in mind that we only operate the Vic branded ferries, which are black and white vessels . If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact us at 340-779-4000.

Memorial Day Facts
Memorial Day is the day that we memorialize those who bled and died while still in military service or as a result of wounds sustained during their time of service. It's distinct from Veteran's Day because Veteran's Day honors all Veterans living or dead, whether they served in war time or times of peace. At 3:00 pm local time, the national moment of remembrance, let us take a moment to thank those who made the ultimate sacrifice. We are forever grateful.
M/V Grand Vic is Available for your Transportation Needs Between St. Thomas and St. John, US Virgin Islands
Update on our fleet: Love City Car Ferries, Inc. operates 3 car ferries in the Virgin Islands, M/V Capt Vic, M/V Island Vic and M/V Grand Vic. As many of you may already know, the M/V Island Vic was destroyed in the storms. She is not fixed yet because we used her insurance money as seed money for the building of the Grand Vic. Island Vic will be refurbished as soon as we can fully recoup financially.
You may be wondering, however, what's up with the Capt Vic. That vessel worked tirelessly after the storm and is still a viable vessel for operation. However, we've paid Subbase Dry-dock our deposit since November of 2018 for her bi-annual dry-docking and we are still waiting our turn. Apparently they have a big project going on and we are next in line. Until then, we prefer not to harass Capt Vic too much. We believe she needs some tender loving care, which leaves the M/V Grand Vic.
Grand Vic is available for your transportation needs between St. Thomas and St. John. Please keep in mind that we only operate the Vic branded ferries, which are black and white vessels . If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact us at 340-779-4000 during our office hours of Mondays to Fridays between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM. We look forward to seeing you on board the M/V Grand Vic.
