A new state-of-the-art cruise port is coming to Belize named Port Coral which will be able to handle four Oasis-class cruise ships at any one time!

Everything to Know About the New Port Coral in Belize

There is a new state-of-the-art cruise port coming to Belize which will become a popular port of call for cruise ships once it is completed. Port Coral will help solve all the challenges Belize City currently suffers to offer a great cruise passenger experience.

At the moment any cruise ship calling to the city in the western Caribbean can only anchor a few miles offshore from the current Tourism Village port. Cruise passengers have to take a 20-minute tender ride to go ashore and if weather conditions aren’t favorable it’s common for cruise ships to cancel the port of call.

Coral Port will make the experience much smoother as cruise ships will actually be able to dock rather than tender. There will be two large piers each being able to berth two vessels. The location of the new port will be four miles away from Belize City on Stake Bank Island and offer natural deep water access.

The port will be able to handle a large amount of capacity with a total of four Royal Caribbean Oasis-class vessels able to dock at any given time. That would be over 22,000 cruisers being able to enjoy the modern facility in one day, there will be no reason to leave!

Getting to the mainland will be easy with visitors able to get a short tender ride from the international port of entry at Port Coral to the terminal at North Drowned Caye. From there, guests can get to the mainland via a vehicle causeway which is open to the public.
