Port Royal will welcome its first cruise ship today. The Discovery II of Marella Cruise Lines is scheduled to make its inaugural call at the Port terminal at the historic Fort Charles between 10am and 7pm.
The over 1900 passengers will experience historical walking tours of the town including the renovated Fort Charles as well as have the opportunity to visit other parts of the capital city.
The Fort, being developed by the port Authority of Jamaica, is slated to be completed by March. Once complete, it will also serve as a location for events.
The $45m will be the first multi-purpose Fort on the island.
