Cabinet has approved US$7.4 million for the supply, installation and commissioning of a sea walk floating pier for cruise ships at Port Royal.
Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator Ruel Reid told a post-Cabinet press briefing that Cruise Ventures AS has been awarded the contract.
In March this year, Prime Minister Andrew Holness, announced Cabinet’s approval of the development of a cruise-ship terminal at Port Royal, creating a platform for the restoration of the sector in the historic town.
Port Royal has well over 500 years of history.
A key component of the proposed development is restoration of historical sites in Port Royal, including the Old Naval Hospital, Fort Charles, the Admiralty houses and Fort Rocky.
