It's time for The Jacksonville Port Authority to take action and start building a new permanent cruise port. Savannah, GA is conducting a feasibility study to build a cruise terminal in order to attract the Fascination away from Jax. Jacksonville, like many cities in America, has lost many, many jobs these past several years. The Port Authority has bought the land needed at a site much closer to the ocean than where the temporary cruise port is now located. This means no passing under a bridge so the largest ships could dock in Jax. The new site would also provide a short 15 minute cruise to the ocean. The port authority needs to issue bonds and start building the new cruise terminal before someone else steps up and we loose our ship.
