Water Roban, the Minister of Transport and Regulatory Affairs, said the island looked forward to Disney Cruise Lines making its first calls in October 2018.
Pat Phillip-Fairn, the BTAs chief product and experiences development officer, said the commencement of the tender operation had stood out as a highlight of the year.
She added: The potential economic impact of direct calls to the East End and the dedicated tender service, in addition to arrivals from the public ferries, is something the town can build upon further.
Disney Cruise Line is coming to Bermuda for the first time in October 2018.
The Disney Magic will sail to Bermuda five times next year from New York City.
The total economic impact would be an increase of approximately $12.7 million.
