In 2019, 24 cruise ships from 17 different companies will make 76 stops in the Port of Montréal, bringing more than 113,000 cruise pax and crew members to the city.
The cruise port expects four new ships to arrive this year: the Zaandam(Holland America Line), the Riviera (Oceania Cruises), the Viking Sun(Viking Ocean Cruises) and the Ocean Dream (Maritime Holding Group).
"Montréal is a must-see destination on the Saint Lawrence River. We welcomed 40,000 passengers in 2010, and now that number is more than 110,000! Thanks to this tremendous progress, we've successfully connected with the luxury market," said Yves Lalumière, President and CEO of Tourisme Montréal.
This year, the Montréal Port Authority expects to complete Terminal 2 at the Port of Montréal's Grand Quay.
