Cruise ship tops off banner year

The last cruise ship of the season arrived in Halifax yesterday, capping what port authorities are calling a milestone year for cruise travel in Halifax.

The Crystal Symphony, a Crystal Cruise Line vessel en route to Montreal from Boston, came into port yesterday. It’s the last of 118 vessels and over 227,000 visitors to dock in the Halifax harbour this year.

The direct impact of cruise travel this season is estimated at $50 million in passenger, crew, and cruise line expenditures.

The season also broke a one-day record for visitors, welcoming 11,000 people from five vessels on Oct. 8.
