Port of Belize Has Three Cruise Lines Interested

Andrew Lane

As it relates to the competitiveness of the Port of Belize’s proposed cruise port, in comparison to the cruise ports currently being developed in Belize, C.E.O. Lane says Port of Belize has an advantage. That advantage is a letter of intent from the three largest cruise lines, according to C.E.O. Lane. Here is how he puts it.

 

Andrew Lane, C.E.O., Port of Belize Limited

“We have letters of intent from three of the largest cruise lines. They are pledging passenger numbers if we can build this facility. As we saw last week, and it was openly admitted by Stake Bank Enterprises, they don’t have these. And, they won’t have them either, because that is not what the industry requires. Port Magical also doesn’t seem to have the same support. Port Magical is a similar set up to the set up we are looking for. But, if you look at it from an environmental perspective, and yes their environmental case has been approved, but what we are doing is, we are redeveloping a brown field site and they are developing a green field site.  A green field site means that nothing exists and you are building from scratch, where a brown field site means you have the nucleolus you need and you are just improving whatever exists.  Logically speaking, a brown field site will always be more ecologically friendly than a green field development.”
