The MV Britannia is expected to be the first ship to dock at the new pier, the second mega pier on the island, when it arrives in Curaçao on Nov. 13, according to the report.
The pier, named The Tula Pier, is located in the Otrobanda area, west of St. Anna Bay. Built at the cost of $43 million, the new pier will help the island keep up with increasing cruise traffic demand, officials said.
The pier is named for a heroic slave, Tula, also known as Tula Rigaud. He led the Curaçao Slave Revolt of 1795 and was executed on Oct. 3, 1795.
