Cruise Ship Arrivals ResumeWith all the losses and devastation wrought by Hurricane Richard, it went under the radar that cruise ships also had to cancel their calls on Belize due to navigational aids which were damaged in the passage of the storm.
Well, the BTB today announced that the guides have been repaired and with that cruise ship activity will now resume in Belize City.
Three ship calls were cancelled this week because of the broken aids, which were.
From what we've been able to gather, getting them fixed wasn't easy- not least because they are very expensive and there is a schism between the Public Port Authority and the private Port Of Belize.
According to the BTB, the repair required the collaboration of National Emergency Management Organization and Belize Port Authority, along with assistance from the BTB and the Ministry of Tourism.
