This year’s cruise ship season promises to be busy one

The 2014 cruise ship season will kick off on May 8 when Holland America’s Veendam pays a visit.

Holland America, the Charlottetown Harbour Authority’s largest cruise client, has 47 of the 64 ship calls scheduled for this season.

The schedule is set to welcome approximately 133,370 passengers and crew and will once again welcome back calls from Holland America through the summer months.

The 2013 season was a record one for Charlottetown.

“Coming off of such a great cruise season in 2013, we are thrilled to be maintaining such strong numbers,” says Corryn Morrissey, manager of marketing and communications with the authority. “Having the opportunity to welcome ships during the summer months is a great addition to an already successful industry.”

This year’s season will welcome ships right through to early November. The Legend of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean ship, will wrap up the season with a 12-night Canada and Bermuda cruise.

“This repositioning cruise is a wonderful way to wrap up the 2014,” says Les Parsons, CEO for the Harbour Authority.

    Fewer ships, some of better small to mid-size ships missing (new oil quality regulations?) but I guess they're trying to put a good face on it. You have to wonder what Royal Caribbean is thinking by having the last visit of the season at the END of the first week of Nov. What attractions are still open at that late a date?
