One of the least popular cruise ports offered on cruises from Florida is getting major transformation that will include a new terminal, waterfront park, village, amphitheater, shops, restaurants, and more. The new port will also be able to handle up to eight cruise ships a day.
The goal of Global Port Holding 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.
The agreement with Global Ports Holding is for the company to manage the redesigned port for 25 years. Construction is expected to be completed by 2022.
