Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that they will be delaying the opening of Harvest Caye until November 2016.
Harvest Caye is part of a $50 million project by Norwegian Cruise Line to develop two adjoining islands in Belize into the Caribbean’s premier destination experience. The port will feature an expansive pool, exclusive beach, shallow lagoon for watersports, private luxury cabanas, and many more exciting features.
Norwegian Cruise Line gave the following statement regarding the opening of the port:
“We are dedicated to delivering the highest quality amenities and services to our guests in one of the richest ecosystems in the region with a diversity of flora and fauna that is core to the Harvest Caye experience. As a result, the grand opening of Harvest Caye will take place in November 2016.”
Passengers sailing on Western Caribbean cruises will now call on Belize City, replacing the stop in Harvest Caye. Guests who were scheduled to stop at the port will receive a revised itinerary by the end of the week. Harvest Caye was originally scheduled to open on February 16, 2016 with a port stop by Norwegian Jade.
