|Prince Rupert's Cruise season is just over |
six weeks away and the Cruise ambassador
program is making its plans for the year
The rebuilding of Prince Rupert's Cruise ship footprint is on track for a fairly large step this year, with the Port of Prince Rupert recently releasing a timetable that will see far more visits this summer at the Northland Cruise Terminal than we have seen for the last number of years.
The first of the twenty five ships arrives on May 19th and with the countdown to the season launch now on, the City's Cruise Ship Volunteer Ambassadors Program is looking to get a good jump on the busy season ahead.
The Volunteer program basically places local residents around the Cruise Ship dock and Cow Bay area, ready to answer questions and direct visitors to different attractions or services that are found in the community.
2017 will be a year to keep the ambassadors busy, with more than double the number of port calls on the year and over 17,000 visitors expected to descend on the city through to October. Something that will certainly put the program to test and will require a significant increase in those that can volunteer some of their time from May through September.
Plans are in the works to host a sign up event in the near future for both returning ambassadors and newcomers that may want to learn more about the program and to get a heads up on when the event is to take place you can sign up for their communication list, where you will get further updates on the planning as the season gets closer.
