Honduran dignitaries and executives of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. prepare to cut the ribbon at the grand opening of the Town Center at Roatan Port recently. Amid great fanfare and attended by area residents and guests of Voyager of the Seas calling at the port, the commemoration marks the completion of one of two phases for Central America’s first combination cruise port and community center. Four buildings and three acres of transportation facilities currently offer world-class duty-free retail, entertainment, restaurants and bars, and other amenities in the pedestrian-friendly waterfront development. Additional buildings will be constructed in the next phase of development to accommodate commercial demands. The new Town Center is the result of a partnership between Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., the Municipality of Roatan, and the Honduras Institute of Tourism.
