Project Purpose

To better accommodate the larger vessels that are being used in the modern cruise ship industry, the City and Borough of Juneau replaced the north and south cruise ship terminal berths with two large floating concrete pontoons.  Both berths are capable of handling one Panamax ship up to 1,000 feet in length and one post-Panamax ship up to 1,100 feet in length.
