Cruise Season Comes to an End

Cruise Season Comes to an End

The cruise season has come to an end in Quebec City.

The last ship of the season, the Norwegian Dawn, docked Friday morning at 6 o’clock.

The Norwegian Dawn arrived in Quebec in landing-boarding, that is to say, its 2,000 passengers disembarked to make room for other passengers who were leaving Quebec Saturday, 4 pm to sail to Portland, Maine.

However, the Norwegian Dawn was not the last cruise ship to leave Quebec, as the Emerald Princess, which docked Friday morning left at 5 pm on Saturday.

Record Season

This will definitely close the 2012 cruise season in Quebec City.

A season that breaks two records: the largest number of passengers (110,000) and the largest number of landings (101).

This cruise season takes place in a relatively short period of time, mainly in September and October, and the welcoming capacity of the port reached its maximum limit.

The Quebec Port administration wants to stretch the season, and for it to start earlier.

They want cruise ship passangers to see Quebec’s beauty during the summer, not just in the fall so that the season would actually begin in June.
