The Tortola Pier Park, the British Virgin Islands’ major cruise destination, is committing to a “quick recovery” in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
The Tortola Pier Park is slated for a partial reopening of the facility on Nov. 1, according to a statement from the park.
That will be followed by a Christmas celebration on Dec. 22 and 23.
“We are sending a clear message to our customers, partners and shareholders that yes Tortola Pier Park and the BVI has been affected by two major hurricanes but our story does not end there,” said Meslyn Allan, Leasing & Marketing Manager of Tortola Pier Park Ltd. “We are diligently working closely with the Government of the Virgin Islands and the BVI Ports Authority to ensure a speedy restoration to the facility.”
The park has also launched a “restoration” campaign aiming to let the public know that the park’s efforts will continue.
“Our motivated staff and tenants are eager and ready to once again welcome our valued customers and cruise partners to Tortola Pier Park and we will do so with revitalized passion and strength, continuing our story of being one of the premier cruise and shopping facilities in the Caribbean,” Allan said.
