The Caribbean island of Curacao's Minister of Economic Development met with different organizations about adding a second mega pier for cruise ships as well as a cruise terminal in Caracasbaai. 

The Curacao Chronicle reports Royal Caribbean has shown "great interest" in the island.  Royal Caribbean President of Commercial Development, John Tercek, indicated to Minister Stanley Palm that his company is interested in the second mega pier in that area.

Tercek agreed with the Minister that further discussions were needed regarding Caracasbaai so that other aspects of the project can be researched further, including nature and the environment.  Tercek also said that the Caracasbaai project does not preclude current plans on a second mega pier. The aim is to offer the city center as part of a tour which leaves from Caracasbaai.
