The newest Jamaican cruise ship port in Falmouth is reportedly ready to begin service, according to USA Today.
Although reports have speculated whether the port was ready for the arrival of Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas ship, the cruiseline's vice president of new business development, John Tercek, confirmed that it was complete. However, retail shops are still under construction.
"We'll be able to deliver a good experience for guests visiting in the interim," Tercek told the news source. "By the time the big ship comes, our project will be done."
Navigator of the Seas is quite a large vessel with a capacity for 3,400 passengers. It will reportedly be the first to arrive in Falmouth on January 7. Two ships per week will dock at the new port each week after, according to the news provider.
The port is a reported 32 acres and is the result of a partnership between Royal Caribbean and the Port Authority of Jamaica. It was built to accommodate even larger ships than the Navigator and, once complete, will have a number of shops and restaurants where passengers can spend their time off of the ship.
