Norwegian’s $100M cruise port Opening Soon!

While slightly behind schedule, Norwegian Cruise Line’s $100 million Harvest Caye cruise port off Belize’s southern coast is set to open slightly later than their anticipated February 16th projection.

Norwegian’s website lists Harvest Caye as a port of call on seven-night cruises from Tampa beginning in February aboard the 2,348-passenger Norwegian Star. The site also features Harvest Caye excursions including visits to one of Belize’s many Mayan archaeological sites, plus adventure-themed activities including rainforest river tubing, snorkeling and zip-lining.

Andrade said of Harvest Caye, “From our perspective it is coming along well and we are now expecting what date the southern cruise port will be open.”

He added, “We are expecting that there will be some activities on Harvest Caye itself.” BTB officials also expect guests to venture into the small, adjacent town of Placencia, a small resort town that local residents and tourism officials alike have said will experience significant impact from the new cruise port.

And while they may not know just quite yet, Maya Rising will be providing transportation to passengers for daytime activities, upon completion in late 2016. We look forward to working with Norwegian on the details…
