The next James Bond film, the 25th in the iconic film franchise, will include a stop in Jamaica.

The news was revealed Thursday at a launch event by Bond producers and cast at the iconic Goldeneye estate, Bond creator Ian Fleming’s former home in Oracabessa, where he wrote all of the original Bond novels. (Goldeneye is now a luxury hotel owned by music producer Chris Blackwell).

It will be the first Bond film in Jamaica since Live and Let Die, which starred Roger Moore and included scenes at Jamaica’s legendary Half Moon resort.

The USVI is determined to position itself as the number one cruise destination in the Caribbean.

“As we build this new Virgin Islands product and we recover from two hurricanes, our main push is to make St. Thomas the premier port in the Virgin Islands, to solidify an identity for St. Croix, whether it’s in Christiansted with our small cruise ship industry or in Frederiksted with the expansion of our port and what we are doing in (the) town,” he said on the heels of the Seatrade Cruise Global conference in Miami Beach.
