Port Charlottetown prepares for record-breaking cruise season in 2018 with 94 scheduled calls and 115,000 passengers, a 28% increase over the 2017.
“These numbers are unprecedented for cruise on the Island and to see the sailing season spread further into the early months and through the summer is a great indication of where this busisess is going,” states Les Parsons, CEO of the Harbour Authority.
“We are incredibly proud of the growth of cruise in our region,” explains Corryn Clemence, Business Development Manager at the port. “We have worked diligently with local tourism operators, cruise lines and regional counterparts to put our best foot forward and sell the destination as a must stop port of call. The opportunity to showcase PEI as a premier vacation destination and the propensity for passengers to return has a substantial economic impact for the Island.”
