Falmouth Expected to Suffer Financially As Major Cruiselines Drop Port
Falmouth is reportedly expected to miss out on significant earnings as three major cruise lines have dropped the town’s popular cruise port.
The ships – the Allure of The Seas, Celebrity, and one from Royal Caribbean, have reportedly opted to take their businesses elsewhere for the coming season and next year.
The cruise lines reportedly cited visitor harassment as one of their concerns.
The three vessels bring a combined 10 thousand guests per visit to the port and the sector reportedly stands to lose five million dollars on a monthly basis.
According to The Gleaner, Falmouth’s Mayor, Colin Gager acknowledged an ongoing problem with visitor harassment.
He also revealed that the vessels have indicated that may return either in 2019 or 2020.
