Legacy_BrandFollowing an eight-year courtship spearheaded by the Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJ), Jamaica has sealed a first-ever call by Disney Cruise Line into Jamaica’s Historic Falmouth Cruise Port beginning October 2013. The 1,754-passenger Disney Wonder will visit the island’s newest port in Falmouth as part of the ship’s latest seven-night Western Caribbean itinerary, which will launch from Galveston, Texas.

“We’re thrilled about Jamaica’s partnership with such as an established legacy brand,” said John Lynch, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. “As we’re constantly seeking opportunities in an array of target markets, Disney’s arrival will further strengthen Jamaica’s positioning in the family market. Our Historic Falmouth Cruise Port was built specifically for the island to have the capacity to receive mega ships, which has resulted in substantial growth in our cruise passenger arrivals,” he added.

Miami-Dade County officials are urging residents to get up and go. Commissioner Dorrin D. Rolle sponsored a resolution supporting First Lady Michelle Obama's, Let's Move campaign, aimed at reducing childhood obesity in the United States. The Miami-Dade County Commission passed the legislation on Tuesday, July 20, expanding the program to target both adults and children in Miami with a public awareness campaign. Also a strong supporter of the campaign is Commissioner Rebeca Sosa, who co-sponsored the legislation.
