Grand Bahama’s tourism picture got a boost with the arrival of the Caribbean Princess, a 950-foot-long vessel owned and operated by Princess Cruise Lines. The ship, which operates seven-day cruises out of Houston, Texas, arrived at Freeport Harbour Wednesday with some 3,210 passengers, before heading on to New Providence. It was the second visit to Grand Bahama over the past two months. On Wednesday morning, officials of Freeport Harbour Company, Ministry of Tourism and Princess Cruises commemorated the event with a plaque exchange.
