Second Cruise ship of the season set to pull in for eight hour stop over

Prince Rupert will be welcoming its second cruise ship of the 2016 Cruise Season this afternoon when the Seven Seas Mariner makes its arrival at Northland Cruise Terminal at 1 PM, offering the potential of over 700 guests and crew members into the streets to explore the City.

While not as large as the season opening visit by the Radiance of the Seas which carried 2100 guests into port, the Seven Seas Mariner marks the season return for the Regent Cruise Line back to the city, providing the North Coast the opportunity to showcase some of the attractions that could lead to more port calls in the years to come.

The ship is described as the world's first all-suite, all balcony ship and recently had a multi million dollar refurbishment, with a number of new looks for many of the ships guest areas.

It currently is being used on the Alaska Cruise service in and out of Vancouver, the vessel arrives in Prince Rupert having set sail from
Sitka, Alaska on Saturday evening.

The Seven Seas Mariner will be alongside Northland until its departure time of 9 PM tonight.

Once it leaves Prince Rupert harbour the vessel will travel the outside passage with a Port call in Victoria on May 31st prior to its return to Vancouver on June 1st
