Carnival's Half Moon Cay to Receive a Pier

   August 7, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

HAL Properties Ltd (subsidiary of Carnival Corporation) announced plans to add a new berthing pier at Half Moon Cay Cruise Port which will allow guests to exit directly to the shore.

By constructing a pier, cruisers will be able to access the island quicker with less hassle as they will not have to rely on water shuttles to and from the island. This will provide more time to enjoy Half Moon Cay. Those with mobility issues will not have to worry about tendering to shore. Another advantage is that cruise guests won't have to worry about stormy weather.

Half Moon Cay (Bahamas private island)

Half Moon Cay, also popular as Little San Salvador Island, is situated around 100 miles southeast of port Nassau. The subsidiary of Carnival, Holland America, purchased the island back in 1996. While many know it as 'Carnival's private island', Holland America Line's ships also make calls there.

The project is estimated to cost US$80 million.

The cruise line also plans to improve and upgrade the existing beach entertainment facility.
