Carnival Cruise Lines is planning to expand options for guests in Nassau, a frequently visited port in the Bahamas.
The cruise line has partnered with Carib Resorts, which is developing a site for shore excursions on a remote island. Carlos Torres de Navarra, Carnival’s vice president for commercial port operations, discussed the project Wednesday during a session at the Cruise Shipping Miami conference in Miami Beach.
After disembarking at the port, passengers will be able to take a small boat to the island, called Balmoral. Torres de Navarra said the island will include elements of Bahamian history and serve as an alternative to shopping and Atlantis, Paradise Island options.
“Some passengers have done that again and again,” he said.
A spokeswoman for Carnival said the cruise line is not ready to reveal details about the project.
