Growth for Summer

Crews are working day and night (well, evenings, at least) in Juneau to complete the two additional floating berths at the city's downtown port in time for the summer cruise season.

The berths are also larger and will enable the port to handle longer ships. Currently, the longest ship that can be accommodated is 960 feet. When the new berths are completed, the city will be able to receive a 1,000-foot and 1,100-foot vessel at the same time.

Details appeared in the January 27 edition of Cruise News Daily.
