Friday Port Call for Two cruise ships to Prince Rupert

"All ashore, that's going ashore" will be the call Friday morning on the Prince Rupert waterfront, as two cruise vessels make a port call on the city, marking the busiest day of the 2014 cruise season for Prince Rupert.

And while the vessels making the stopover in the city aren't the largest that we have seen over the years, the arrival of the Silver Shadow and the Caledonian Sky  will offer up a suggestion of what an increased presence in the cruise industry could bring the city once again.

The twin hit of cruise ships should see close to 500 visitors exploring the city and region's attractions, the Caledonian Sky accommodates 114 passengers who will be transported to Prince Rupert from the vessels anchorage in Prince Rupert Harbour, the Caledonian Sky pulls into the harbour at 7:30 AM.

The Silver Shadow receives the Northland Cruise Terminal berth, arriving at 8 AM with a potential 382 guests ready to examine what the North Coast has to offer.

Some may already have some idea as to what they wish to take in, Cruise Prince Rupert has developed a web portal that outlines a fair amount of background on the region and some of the activities and attractions that are available from it.

Prince Rupert will see ten cruise ships in total call on the port this year, with seven vessels still to come following tomorrows port call.  Three of those calls arrive in July, with none scheduled for August and  the remainder in September.

The final cruise call of the year takes place on September 19th when the Silver Shadow makes another visit to the city.
