Ships will arrive at the port between 7 May to 7 November 2023

Port Saint John is set to receive 86 cruise calls with almost 200,000 passengers onboard in its 2023 cruise season, as the Canadian city marks 35 years of welcoming cruise ships.

Ships will arrive at the port throughout the six month season, which spans from 7 May to 7 November 2023. This year’s schedule include 6 days in which three ships will be docked at the port, along with a further 14 in which two will visit. Eight vessels will make their inaugural calls to Port Saint John, and there will be eight separate overnight calls. The schedule also includes a call from Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas for the second year in a row on 30 May, with more than 5,000 passengers onboard.

The cruise business is estimated to be worth over $68 million annually to the Saint John and southern New Brunswick economies. This impact includes direct spending by cruise lines, passengers and crew, and direct jobs for New Brunswickers.

“We are thrilled to be releasing the 2023 cruise schedule today so that our community can prepare for the exciting season ahead,” said Natalie Allaby, cruise development manager for Port Saint John.
