Carnival chief says Nassau port project is in the works


Carnival chief says Nassau port project is in the works

By Tom Stieghorst
MIAMI BEACH — Carnival Cruise Lines President Gerry Cahill said the line is working on a port-improvement project in Nassau, Bahamas.

Cahill made the disclosure on the State of the Industry panel at the Cruise Shipping Miami conference.

Carnival has previously partnered to build Caribbean port infrastructure in the Turks & Caicos and on the island of Roatan in Honduras.

Cahill would not discuss the scope or nature of the project, but said Carnival is working with a third party and getting cooperation from the Bahamian government to facilitate it.

In an interview after the panel discussion, Cahill said he wasn't prepared to say more, but that details could be forthcoming in several weeks.
