However, Tourism Authority Officials stated that the issue was not the weather but the downturn in customers due to a lack of marketing on the part of the contractor. Royal Passenger Lines did not admit to this, however, have stated that along with reopening they have started a Facebook marketing campaign and will be working with local tourism agencies to promote the ferry.
