Belize Cruise NorwegianAs listed in a 2013 report, Norwegian Cruise Line has mentioned “commenced development of recently acquired island destination in Belize.” It is now confirmed that Norwegian has been investing in building a 50$ million exquisite cruise destination which spans on 75 acres placed on two islands in southern Belize.

As mentioned last August, the project will most likely feature a floating pier, a marina, a transportation hub, a lagoon for water activities and sports, a beach area and an island village with open-air structures placed on platforms. The project has been organically oriented to blend into the natural scenery and to incorporate traditional Belizean, Mayan and Garifuna cultural elements.

“As our fleet continues to grow to 15 ships by 2017, we expect that we will double the number of guests sailing on our Western Caribbean itineraries and, once this new destination is complete, bring four times as many guests to Belize than we do today,” Norwegian President and CEO Kevin Sheehan said in August 2013.

As the market for exclusive cruise is expanding, the notable feature on the Norwegian strategy is the environment consideration in terms of paying respects to nature and nurturing local culture at the same time.
