The South Carolina State Ports Authority is set to unveil its plan for a new cruise terminal after months of deliberations. The Ports Authority will announce a new concept for the cruises coming into Charleston at a community meeting today. The Ports Authority has held several meetings to hear from area leaders and community members over the past few months.
The Associated Press reported the Ports Authority announced last fall it was working with the City of Charleston to replace the current 40-year-old brick and cinder-block terminal building, as well as redevelop a 55-acre tract around the terminal. This spring, Carnival Cruise Lines will start with its 67 cruise calls porting out of Charleston.
