|A Prince Rupert Port call for the Sojourn today |
as visitors take to the city's streets and attractions
The second port call for June at the Northland Cruise Terminal found the cruise ship Sojourn arriving early this morning, sending many of its 450 passengers off to explore the North Coast under very sunny skies and warm temperatures.
The Sojourn, part of the Seabourn Cruise line provides for a more intimate travel experience as compared to the larger vessels that run along the BC and Alaska coast, but luxury is still the key for those exploring the Pacific Northwest.
The vessel is relatively new to the Seabourn line, its maiden journey coming seven years ago, with the Sojourn featuring what is called the living room which replaces the typical cruise ship lobby with the ship's shops all located off the Square.
It features a number of spas, swimming pools, clubs as well as quiet areas. Larger events while at sea take place in the Grand Salon.
The Sojourn will be tied up along Northland until its departure time of 6 PM tonight, it returns to Prince Rupert on July 18th, making for just one of eight port calls at Northland over the month, providing for the largest volume of port visitors for the 2017 cruise season.
July and August combined will find fourteen port calls taking place, a number which makes for over half of all cruise ship visits to Prince Rupert in 2017.
