”We’re doing a lot

of work but we’re

very excited and

very optimistic”

and this is something we feel very strongly

about,” he says. “Because of this we’re moving

very quickly to do an upgrade and expansion

of our terminal buildings at Montego Bay.”

The Port Authority of Jamaica took

the opportunity to visit successful ports

in Majorca and Germany to see how

they have adapted their facilities for

homeporting purposes.

In light of this, the main terminal at

Montego Bay will be gutted later this year,

with a series of improvements and upgrades

set to be made. Terminal two at Montego

Bay will also undergo upgrades ahead of the

upcoming season.

Furthermore, the tourism industry in

Montego Bay is receiving some timely

support from the Jamaican government,

with the reintroduction of the railways.

There’s little doubt that the cruise

industry in Jamaica is moving in a wholly

positive direction, and Tatham is confident

that with the ongoing projects on the island,

the future looks bright.

“We’re doing a lot of work but we’re very

excited and very optimistic,” he concludes.

“We feel very positive about the direction

we are going in and what is taking place

both in Jamaica and the rest of the

Caribbean as well.”
