2011 Season Ends With Triple Ship Day

The 2011 cruise ship season is wrapping up in style today with three different vessels in Port.

The Jewel of the Seas arrives first followed by the MSC Poesia and then the Carribean Princess.  Over 200 travel agents will be visiting onboard the MSC Poesia.

Saint John Port Authority CEO Jim Quinn tells CHSJ News this season has been challenging with 5 ships cancelling calls due to bad weather.
He says that may mean our passenger numbers will come in somewhere between 185 and 190,000.

Quinn adds the 2012 season has 76 ships due to call including 9 visits from a new line to Saint John-- Disney Cruises.
Today's schedule:
Jewels of the Seas 7am
MSC Poesia  12pm
Carribean Princess 8am
