Nassau Cruise Port is proud to announce that, after comparing its total passenger numbers year over year, the total number of passengers that visited the port this year (as of September 2023) was over 11,000 passengers higher than the overall passenger count for 2022.
By September 24, 2023, the port team had welcomed 3,224,210 cruise passengers for the year. By comparison, 3,212,603 passengers visited the port between January and December 2022.
Company executives estimate that they will welcome 4.2 million passengers for the year by December 2023, which, if achieved, will mark a new total annual passenger record for the leading cruise port in the region.
