The average cruise ship visit is between 8 and 12 hours in Caribbean ports. There are very few ports in that part of the world that cater for longers stays. The exceptions are San Juan,PR, Aruba and Curacao and these ports reap the benefits, late shopping, casino, dockside festivities and cultural presentations. Every ship has duty-free shops and a casino but, they are closed while in port so, if Liverpool were to provide a dockside casino and/or provide transportation to a nearby facility it would syphon off some of the money gambled aboard ship. The more facilities offered to cruise passengers, the longer the ships will stay in port. There is no point in having a cruise ship alongside from 8:00AM to 12:Midnight if everything ashore, except pubs, is closed at 6:00PM.begsy said:it seems imperative that Peel get there act together and build some type of 24hr.

Yes it was me, I often think that to be to critical of developments based upon renders is a mistake, also you need to look at the bigger picture. How will a particular development "sit " with adjacent structures. I am sure that this much maligned MSCP will blend in with its location.
Great pics, liverpolitan
