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

  2. Hi there, no I don't use WordPress, but it is a very good platform and one I might choose today if I were starting brand new.

    For me the prospect of migrating all my past material to that platform is not something I've explored too much, it may be easy, it may be hard, I'm not really sure. For Now I continue to use Blogger which is a decent program, but has its limitations and occasional hiccups that cause some stress (don't get me started on lengthy and deeply researched posts that disappeared before I could get to posting them ...

    As for coding experience you really don't need any background in computers to create a blog, both Blogger and WordPress have great templates to make it very easy. Good luck getting your blog off the ground, hope you find success and get lots of hits!!
