In 2011 a new $180 million port was built to accommodate the newest and largest cruise ships, including Royal Caribbean International's Oasis class. -- On a side note, my husband and I were on the maiden voyage of Oasis's sister ship the Allure of the Seas, but because this port was not finished yet, our ship don't go here even though it was on the itinerary. We still LOVED the ship and the cruise though.
