Use of Cruise Ship Terminal in Maine Debated

Cruise-Ship

Future use of Bar Harbor, Maine’s idle international ferry dock facility as a cruise ship terminal was recently discussed at a special town council meeting, according to an article on MDIslander.com.

Ownership, control and management of the proposed facility would depend on how the project is financed, said consultant Louis Ajamil of Bermello, Ajamil and Associates (B&A).

The idle ferry terminal facility is set to be purchased by the Maine Port Authority (MPA) this year. Bay Ferries Ltd., operators of The Cat, ended service between Bar Harbor and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, in 2009. The facility has been shuttered since.
