Cruise ship terminal begun.

CRUISE SHIP TERMINAL BEGUN. President Leonel Fernandez and Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia launched the construction of a cruise ship port, Amber Cove, in Maimon, Puerto Plata province, reports Hoy (May 14, 2012). Garcia said the 50,000 square meter terminal would support tourism in the north, providing thousands of jobs. The terminal will be built and operated by Carnival, but it will allocate space to ships from other lines. The terminal will have the capacity to receive two ships simultaneously, with around 5,000 passengers. A feasibility study showed that as many as 250,000 passengers could arrive during the first year, increasing to 600,000 in the next three years. The new Carnival Cruise Line terminal will cost US$65 million.
