The Queen Mary 2 Arrives Overnight

If you wanted to watch the Queen Mary 2 sail into port, you will have to set your alarm.   

The famous vessel is coming into port extra early at 3am and staying for a full 12 hours. 

The visit signals the winding down of the 2013 cruise ship season. 

Betty MacMillan, Manager of Cruise development for Port Saint John tells CHSJ News she's here early to take on water.

She says ships often take on water in our Port and its an advantage for us since water is available at every berth.

MacMillan says it's always a little sad to see the end of cruise season ship coming with two ships in on Sunday, another every day until Friday with the last ship of the season.
