Three submit bids for the redevelopment of the Nassau Cruise Port

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – While there has been much talk of the government not consulting the public on the development of the Nassau Cruise Port before issuing request for proposals, or RFP’s, the Ministry of Tourism announced that three companies have submitted bids for the redevelopment and management of the Nassau Cruise Port.

The companies are Providence Advisors (representing Nassau port partners); Cruise Ports International Ltd, (representing cruise ports international,  Carnival, Disney, Norwegian & Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines ); and Global Ports Holding Company.

The Ministry said the bids are to be reviewed by a committee comprised of public and private sector professionals.

Meanwhile, there have been concerns in some quarters about the government’s ability to be unbiased in the RFP process.
