Harvest Caye Welcomes First Cruise Passengers

Cruise News – Nov. 18, 2016

Harvest Caye, the cruise industry’s newest private island port of call in southern Belize, officially welcomed its first cruise passengers when Norwegian Dawn arrived from New Orleans on November 17, 2016.

nclh-harvest-caye-harvest_landshark_poolLocated just one mile off shore, Harvest Caye offers Caribbean cruisers an authentic Belizean experience that highlights the country’s beauty and nature, along with resort-style amenities including a 15,000-square-foot pool and private luxury beach villas; a variety of eco-activities and interactive wildlife programs; and a cross-island zip line.

With its close proximity to the mainland, Harvest Caye also offers easy access to a variety of adventure excursions. The resort-style port of call, developed by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. (NCLH), is the only port in Belize that features a cruise ship pier for guest convenience and comfort.

nclh-harvest-caye-tony_0492“We have worked closely with the government of Belize to ensure that that this spectacular destination was authentic for our guests, provided economic opportunities for the local community, and preserved and protected Belize’s incredible natural beauty,” said Frank Del Rio, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.

Colin Murphy, Senior Vice President of Destination and Strategic Development for NCLH led a ribbon-cutting ceremony and official grand opening, where he was joined by the Honorable Manuel Heredia, Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation for Belize; Honorable Edmond Castro, Minister of State for National Emergency Management for Belize; and Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow, wife of Belize’s Prime Minister Dean Barrow.

nclh-harvest-caye-entrance_0728“We have embarked on an unprecedented and incomparable journey,” said Heredia. “The growth in cruise tourism over the past 20 years proves that Belize is a destination of choice for those seeking adventure, a host of natural wonders, and most importantly friendly and hospitable people.”

Cruise passengers will have the opportunity to enjoy Harvest Caye on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Western Caribbean itineraries, as well as on select Caribbean sailings on Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Oceania Cruises in Winter 2017 and Fall/Winter 2018.
