SAINT JOHN (NB) – Port Saint John is prepared to handle 11 cruise ships carrying nearly 35,000 guests and crew during a 120-hour period this week from October 5-9.

Friday’s announcement of an additional call of Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas on Monday, October 5th added to an already busy week in the Port City. Liberty of the Seas is visiting Saint John to avoid marine-related weather effects being created by Hurricane Joaquin.

After this week cruise season continues with 17 more ship visits (including a second triple ship day on October 13th and three additional double ship days on October 12th, 14th and 29th). The last visit of the year will be Regent Cruises Seven Seas Navigator on November 3rd.
