Canada’s Port Saint John expects to host more than 90 cruise calls in 2020, which will enable it to surpass the 200,000-passenger record it set in 2010.

Kicking off with an inaugural visit from Victory Cruise Lines’ Victory II on 24 April, the 2020 season will be longer than usual and include eight triple-ship days, eight double-ship days and 10 other maiden calls. May and June will be the busiest months.

“We’re looking forward to having a record-breaking season for cruise in Saint John,” said Jim Quinn, president and CEO of Port Saint John. “This banner year speaks to the incredible growth we’ve seen over 30 years and the strong opportunities that lie ahead.”

Guests will be able to visit various attractions, such as the Fort LaTour historical site, which will open in 2020.

“There’s no shortage of adventure or unique vendors in our region,” said Betty MacMillan, cruise development manager in Port Saint John. “The recognition by lines of this fact is best exemplified in the growth we’re seeing.”
