CRUISE The Port of St. John’s is at the centre of a growing cruise ship industry and serves as a port of call for trans- Atlantic (North), adventure expedition, and home-porting itineraries. The port is a gateway to the vibrant city of St. John’s with an enticing mixture of urban and cultural experiences, not to mention our close proximity to natural and geological wonders that enchant people from around the globe. The unique thrill of entering the Narrows from the rugged Atlantic, and discovering enclosed within the rocky cliffs a historic, colourful port city, never fails to impress the thousands of visitors that arrive on cruise ships each year. Once ashore, visitors are enthralled by our historically- infused streets, unique culinary scene, friendly shops, and spirited people. Our pride in our city encourages us to bring the world to our doorstep and showcase our spectacular landscape and culture. The St. John’s Port Authority has forged a number of alliances to increase the profile of St. John’s as an internationally-preferred cruise destination. We are a partner with Cruise Islands of the North Atlantic, a brand which markets the unique island destinations of Newfoundland and Labrador, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and the Orkney Islands. Working together, we’ve solidified the importance of North Atlantic island ports within the industry. We’re also a partner port with Cruise Newfoundland Labrador, the provincial cruise association focused on promoting the province as a leading global cruise destination. And also with the City of St. John’s in Cruise St. John’s — a group dedicated to attracting new cruise lines and passengers to our beautiful city and delivering world-class experiences. These alliances have helped put the port at the competitive centre of the industry. ST. JOHN’S PORT AUTHORITY 23
