What's in issue 22 – out now

issue22-large-coverCaribbean Maritime Issue 22 coincides with the Caribbean Shipping Executives’ Conference at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay from 11 to 14 May. We have used the opportunity to feature a profile of the world’s biggest and busiest cruise port.

CM highlights some of the many new port and terminal projects currently on the drawing board or under construction in our region. Chinese investors seem to be among the keenest to promote what are truly world-scale undertakings. In particular, we look at controversial plans for a new logistics hub in Jamaica.

The magazine also features one or two select and very different cruise terminal projects – one in the Dominican Republic and the other in Belize. I believe this is the first time we have featured Montserrat in CM and it’s good to see the island making a recovery as a destination.

On the subject of cruises, we profile a ‘new kid on the block’ in the form of Pearl Seas Cruises. Watch out for this particular name next Caribbean winter.

Another major change that is set to transform the Caribbean is a switch from crude oil to gas for the region’s domestic energy needs. CM looks at this nascent energy market and investigates what is being done to develop the use of liquefied natural gas, in particular, in the Caribbean.

We also have features by our regular contributors, who always have something thought-provoking to say and provide an insightful view of the region’s maritime sector.
