Carnival unveils Celebration Key retail zone

Wednesday, 10 Apr, 2024 0

Carnival Cruise Line has unveiled more details about upcoming new Bahamas destination on Grand Bahama.

Celebration Key will feature a retail zone named Lokono Cove.

Lokono Cove was named with help from a Grand Bahama resident and was the winning submission from a community competition.

It is one of the five portals at Celebration Key, and will house a variety of stores and kiosks alongside a Bahamian artisan market showcasing local craftsmanship.

Vendors will offer everything from souvenirs to fine jewelry at Lokono Cove, and showcase Bahamian culture beyond the goods on display.

The portal will have music and vibrant murals painted by Bahamian artists.

The Lokono Cove name was submitted by local resident Deidre Rahming.

Lokono means “the people” and is derived from the Lucayans.

Rahming will receive B$5,000 cash; attendance at the ribbon cutting ceremony for Lokono Cove and a day-pass to Celebration Key, along with drink vouchers, food and a cabana.

“Lokono Cove will be a treasure trove – a place for our guests to immerse themselves in the spirit of The Bahamas and find locally-inspired keepsakes,” CCL President Christine Duffy said.

“Honoring the culture of the Bahamas is integral to our plans for Celebration Key.”

Additionally, Lokono Cove will be the departure point for guests looking to explore other parts of Grand Bahama.

Lokono Cove joins Paradise Plaza, which will serve as a welcome area, and Calypso Lagoon, the adult-friendly area as three of the five portals.

Carnival will share details soon on two more portals.
