As if Savannah isn’t already a hot tourist destination.
Now it’s looking to be a sort of cruise capital.
The city’s council is considering spending $279,500 to study what it would take to bring a cruise ship terminal to the riverfront, the Associated Press and Savannah Morning News report.
Three sites are being considered.
The study would look at the impact _ economic and otherwise _ of running cruise ships in and out of town. Cruise ship traffic would have to be coordinated with Port of Savannah traffic, for one. Another concern that’s been raised is possible pollution.
A temporary cruise terminal supposedly would create 288 jobs.
