Yesterday, the media was invited for a tour on Harvest Caye in the Stann Creek District. Love News was a part of the tour and we spoke to Colin Murphy, the Senior Vice President of Destination for Norwegian Cruise Line who says that they offer tourists a hundred percent Belizean style experience.
One of the most vocal bodies that have been against the Harvest Caye Port since the idea was proposed is FECTAB- the Federation of Cruise Tourism Associations of Belize. FECTAB says that NCL is taking business away from Belize City. Tourism Minister, Manuel Heredia Junior addressed those concerns. Heredia says hundreds of jobs have been created for Belizeans.
NCL has invested over one hundred million in this project.
