Bermuda to build new cruise pier

Date Posted: 02 Dec 2008
Bermuda is planning to construct a new pier in the western region of the islands to accommodate large cruise ships, it has been revealed.

The multi-million dollar project is expected to boost tourism in the area and attract more cruise lines to the islands, the Associated Press reports.

Bermuda already has a number of smaller piers, however they are no longer suitable to accommodate some of the larger ships.

Officials are concerned that failure to improve docking facilities could mean that cruise lines begin to drop Bermuda from their itineraries.

According to the Associated Press, 226,000 cruise passengers visited Bemuda during the month of August, representing an 18 per cent drop on the same period in 2007.

In related news, it was announced earlier this week that Celebrity Cruises will begin offering Bermuda itineraries again from 2008, due to high demand from passengers.
