Cruise industry in Halifax preparing for big comeback

After being shut down for two years due to the global pandemic, the cruise industry in Halifax is looking forward to a strong recovery. The 2022 cruise season in Halifax will start on April 26 with the arrival of Norwegian Getaway, a Norwegian Cruise Line vessel and Ocean Navigator, an American Queen Steamboat Co. vessel. The season will run until November 5, 2022.

 “We are starting the rebuilding process in a strong position,” said Captain Allan Gray, President and CEO, Halifax Port Authority.

”With152 expected vessel calls in 2022, we are at 85% of where we left off in 2019, which is a great position to be in. Nova Scotia is a place that people want to visit, and the cruise lines want to come here. We remain a safe, welcoming destination with natural beauty and authentic experiences to offer.”

“This is what all of us involved in the shore excursion side of the Atlantic cruise industry have been waiting for,” said Dennis Campbell, CEO, Ambassatours Gray Line. “We are so excited to be doing what we love, which is planning and preparing to welcome cruise guests to our region and give them a taste of authentic Maritime hospitality.” (Photo HPA)
