Port Authority opens food court

A new addition to the Cruise Ship terminal was officially opened on Tuesday, and the Port Authority has appealed to the general public to support the businesses there.

The Authority has opened a food court as part of its compliance with International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) standards.{{more}}

The food court is located adjacent to the departure section of the cruise ship terminal, which was previously an open area.

The court houses four shops and includes an internet café, bar and a covered eating area.

According to cruise ship terminal Administrator Harvey Caine, the renovations were done in order to bring the terminal in compliance with ISPS regulations.

Caine appealed to the public to make use of the facilities, which were originally perceived to be only for the benefit of visitors using the terminal.

He said that the shops and stores are open to the public as a family retreat – a place they can visit especially after a long, hard, work week.

Deputy Port Manager Peter Prescod hinted at Tuesday’s opening of the food court, that an inter-island ferry service which will pay regular visits to Grenada, and will have the capacity to carry 400 passengers and up to fifty vehicles will soon be available. (JJ)
