The number of cruise ships calling at Dublin will be halved as a result of plans announced by the Dublin Port Company (DPC).The decision to allow just 80 vessels to call at the port from 2021 -- compared with the 160 cruise ships scheduled to call this year -- is in light of the increase in freight business. The news has been met with dismay by local tourism representatives who say it will hit local businesses as well as the cruise sector.
The new, Disney-run port will join Castaway Cay, the line's current private Bahamian Island. Disney Cruise Line also will directly employ a minimum of 120 Bahamians during the construction of the port, and offer as many as 150 permanent, sustainable jobs with health benefits once construction is completed. The port will be developed to have an authentic feel, employing Bahamian vendors, entertainers and excursion operators in addition to local art and design elements.
