Expansion of BVI Cruise Pier Complete

By ,   May 28, 2015 ,   Cruise Industry

With its expansion complete, BVI cruise pier in Tortola (Road Town), is already 1,039 feet long, 60 feet wide. Another 273 feet are provided by mooring dolphins, giving a total of 1,312-feet berthing space. The pier will now be able to safely berth 2 ships up to 180,000 tons each.

The completion of the pier was recognised with a celebration and an official ceremony on April 29, the same day NCL Norwegian Getaway made her inaugural call. Since the cruise pier is complete, BVI Ports Authority has focused on Tortola Pier Park, an adjacent landside development, expected to feature entertainment and retail spaces.
