Amendment to Harvest Caye agreement signed during high-level cruise meeting

By Aaron Humes: The Government of Belize has announced that it and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) have signed an amendment to the agreement between the Government and Belize Island Holding Limited for the Harvest Caye Port in southern Belize. This amendment promotes equitable benefits for the country and provides a framework for future growth at this port and complementarity with other ports.

The signing occurred during the October 20 high-level meeting between the Government and members of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) in Miami, Florida.

Earlier this year, recommendations were made by the Ministry of Tourism and Diaspora Relations and the Belize Tourism Board for the amendment of the agreement. In April, the Cabinet announced that it would support the adaptation of these recommendations “to improve and define future growth and development of the Harvest Caye Port.”

Harvest Caye has been in operation since November of 2016 apart from during the COVID-19 pandemic when cruise ships stopped calling in Belize. In January of this year, 28 percent of cruise ship visitors arrived via Harvest Caye.
