Port Celebrates 25 Years Of Cruise, Despite Less Successful Season

It's been 25 years since a hurricane accidentally blew the first cruise ship into the Port City--and while 2013 hasn't been the best year for traffic from the the big boats, Port CEO Jim Quinn tells CHSJ News there are better times ahead.

There are only 56 boats scheduled to come here in 2014, which Quinn says is due in part to the still-recovering economy,but the hope is that things will continue to bounce back especially in the historically strong fall cruise season.
