Bermuda considering upgrade of St. George's cruise terminal

By Tom Stieghorst
Bermuda may build a larger cruise terminal in St. George's to accommodate bigger ships.

Tourism and Transport Minister Shawn Crockwell said in the House of Assembly last week that he is in conversations with the cruise industry about options for a cruise pier in St. George's.

King's Wharf is the primary Bermuda destination for mega-ships. If a larger terminal in St. George's were developed, a channel leading to the pier would have to be widened.

Bermuda will get an estimated 343,000 cruise passengers this year. To grow that number significantly, a new terminal will be needed, Crockwell told the Royal Gazette newspaper. A spokesman for the tourism minister confirmed his comments.
