Trelawny – Tourism – Artisan Village (Part 2)
The Falmouth Cruise Ship Pier is a US$220 million investment into the development of the town of Falmouth to ensure Jamaica is established as the premier tourism destination in the western world. It was developed by the Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJ) in partnership with Royal Caribbean Cruise Limited (RCCL).
The pier is the largest the region has the capacity to handle at least two mega ships at the same time. It hosted the world’s largest ship, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines’ Oasis of the Seas in 2010. When the project is complete the pier will boast state-of-art facilities including a terminal building to house port security, customs, immigration, as well as a transportation centre and retail shops.
