The Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJ) has disclosed that 50 cruise ships are expected to visit five ports in the island in the months of November and December 2021.

According to PAJ President and CEO, Professor Gordon Shirley, expanded berthing at the port in Montego Bay, St James, will facilitate larger cruise ships which will start coming to the island in 2022

The expansion of the Montego Bay cruise shipping pier was carried out on some 280,000 square feet of land space at a cost of $184 million. The Ministry of Tourism is currently projecting 200,000 cruise passengers, representing 110 calls between October 2021 and April 2022. There are five
ports of call locally that can accommodate cruise ships.
