“In addition to the construction works taking place, the Premier also noted the successful opening of the Island’s newest boutique hotel, The Loren at Pink Beach, and pointed out that beginning tomorrow [Tuesday] Bermuda will welcome Norwegian Cruise Line visits in St. George’s and on Thursday celebrate JetBlue’s inaugural service from Boston and New York,” the Government said.

“All of this,” said Premier Dunkley, “is good news for Bermuda.”

The Premier continued, “Right now, Bermuda is bustling with activity. There are construction works that are taking place across our Island. There’s an influx of visitors to our shores. And of course, we are merely days away from hosting the 35th America’s Cup, which brings its own level of heightened excitement.

“Last week it was good to visit Caroline Bay to see the progress taking place at the site. Caroline Bay is helping to inject new life into our tourism product and this Government is pleased to support the efforts of Morgan’s Point President and CEO Craig Christensen and his team.

“I am extremely encouraged by the progress made to date, and our entire Island should feel excited about the significance of Ritz Carlton’s demonstrated confidence in Bermuda. The construction of Caroline Bay is benefiting our vital industries of hospitality, construction and other critical sectors that drive our economy.

“So, we believe that the activity taking place in Bermuda is positive. These are large scale, sustained projects, and all of this translates into economic and job opportunities for Bermudians. I recognize that it’s easy to get side tracked by the criticism from some sectors of our community, but the facts are clear – there are real, visible and significant signs of progress happening in Bermuda.”

During the visit to Caroline Bay, the Premier was joined by the Minister of Public Works, Craig Cannonier, the Minister of Social Development and Sports, Nandi Outerbridge and Sen. Vic Ball. While at the site, the Government team received a tour of the new marina and also visited Artemis Racing base.

      Real onion pack your bags and never come back. You out here hoping Bermuda fails. Take the BIU and PLP with you, you all no good for Bermuda. Bermuda needs leaders with vision and the BIU and PLP have no vision! PLP brought us beyonce, OBA bringing us Americas Cup.
