The $250 million project will include berths for an additional two cruise ships, an auditorium for concerts that can hold up to 10,000, an outdoor movie theater, and a landmark modern new building.

A tram service will transport passengers from the cruise ships to the port area making the trip out of the port area easier and faster.

The goal of Global Port Holdings is to make a port in Nassau that people want to come to. Port Nassau will be a cruise destination unlike any other. Upon arriving, cruisers will enjoy a fantastic modern waterfront that will rival any cruise port in the Caribbean.

The Minister of Tourism in the Bahamas said that this project will create a sense of space and openness and eliminate the “harassing type environment” that many cruisers face when they stop in Nassau.

The port will feature open, upscale restaurants and large LED signs. It will have unique architectural features that will make Port Nassau iconic as a cruise destination.

At night, Port Nassau will transform with laser light shows, illuminated sculptures, and walkways,

Once completed, Port Nassau will be a complete transformation from what it is like today.

A timeline for completion of this transformation of Nassau has not yet been released. An official agreement with the government is pending due to negotiations.  However, Global Ports Holding Limited was unanimously selected by the Evaluation Committee.
