Development of the port, which will be served by a floating pier, is ongoing. The pier itself is expected to be installed by this weekend, and more work is to be done on land.

The Port Authority of Jamaica is investing about US$40 million in Port Royal, inclusive of the cost of the SeaWalk floating pier, a cruise terminal, restoration of Fort Charles, a museum and a live archaeological dig.

The cruise ship has the capacity to carry up to 1,800 passengers and is expected to bring mainly European visitors to the island. Port Royal is to become a second Jamaican stop on its itinerary.
What a waste.
