Carnival Cruise to Build a Bahamian First

In bid to boost cruise tourism to the Bahamas, officials from Carnival Cruise Line and the Bahamas government signed an agreement during a special ceremony in Freeport, Grand Bahama for the construction of a new cruise port facility expected to host one million passengers annually.

The currently unnamed port will be funded and operated by Carnival Cruise Line on Grand Bahama Island, and is expected to be the largest purpose-built cruise facility ever constructed in the region.

Features will include a 1.6km stretch of beach, food, beverage and shopping outlets, an array of water-based amenities and other recreational facilities.

The port will also feature a pier capable of accommodating two of Carnival’s largest cruise ships.
