Today is Majority Rule Day in The Bahamas, a national holiday to mark January 10, 1967, when the jurisdiction achieved self governance through democracy. The team at The Bahamas Investor would like to wish The Bahamas all the best on this historic day and acknowledge the determination and sacrifice of all those involved in the political evolution of the nation.

Regular posts will resume Wednesday.

Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Dr Danny Johnson said plans are on the drawing board to improve Junkanoo in Grand Bahama, and a part of that plan is to create an eight-week festival season in The Bahamas.

The private Bahamian destination of Princess Cays has been added to the itineraries of six different Carnival Cruise Line ships beginning in May 2017. Carnival Cruise Line ships are expected to make 40 calls to Princess Cays in 2017 and 98 the following year.
