Largest Ship Pier in Maine Opens
September 18, 2011
Kennebec Journal: A new pier that can accommodate the world’s largest cruise ships will allow the port of Portland to grow the number of ships that visit each year, city officials said today.
The 1,200’ Ocean Gateway Pier II will enable 2 large cruise ships to berth in the harbor at the same time, making the city more competitive in attracting cruise ships, Mayor Nicholas Mavodones said as he stood on the structure beside the 960’ Celebrity Summit. It is the largest ship’s berth in Maine.
