(Caribbean News Now): BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- Royal Caribbean Cruise Line is partnering with Barbados to build a brand new state-of-the-art cruise terminal on the island that will cost over $300 million. The new facility will accommodate some of the world's largest cruise ships.
George Hutson, Barbados Minister of International Transport and International Business, announced the two year project.
“If we are going to remain relevant, if we are going to capitalize on the opportunities available from cruise tourism, we must renew our plant from the basic infrastructure currently existing to one which will accommodate and service the increasingly large cruise ships," he said.
According to Hutson, Barbados is hoping the new cruise terminal will attract more cruise ships to the island, which in turn will lead to increasing revenue generated by cruise passengers on the island.
