Nassau Cruise Port (NCP) welcomed 28,554 passengers today – a new record for the expanded cruise port, with six ships alongside simultaneously. The “new” Nassau Cruise Port, centering around a unique, Authentically Bahamian experience, will celebrate its grand opening at the end of May with a weekend of private events featuring local and international entertainment.
“We are extremely pleased to report another record-setting passenger day here at Nassau Cruise Port. The expanded berths are certainly delivering on the sizeable investment that we have made in them, creating the additional capacity required to achieve this extraordinary new record today. Incredibly, our record today does not include the crew count, which is an additional 10,302 people at Nassau Cruise Port. That’s thousands of visitors exploring downtown Nassau, learning about our island and culture through our restaurants, taxis and tours, and making wonderful memories of The Bahamas that will surely drive them to return.”
The six ships in port today were: Royal Caribbean International’s Wonder of The Seas and Harmony of the Seas; Carnival Cruise Lines’ Mardi Gras; Celebrity Cruise Line’s Reflection and Beyond and MSC Cruises’ Meraviglia.
