Mega ship wharf announced for St Georges
A new cruise ship wharf for St Georges was announced by Transport Minister Walter Roban at a noon press conference today. The new facility would be designed for the mega cruise ships which dominate todays cruise industry.
Mr Roban said: Government is in discussions with the cruise lines to develop a cruise ship pier at the East End. He said the new wharf would be located in the Murrays Anchorage area, which sits on St. Georges north shore.
Mr Roban would not name the cruise lines involved in the discussions, or give an undertaking as to where the new cruise facility would be, or when it would be completed.
Government is also in active discussions with an interested cruise line to find small sized ships that could call at the town of St. Georges and Hamilton, he announced. He said those plans would not come to fruition until 2014 at the earliest.
