The Prince Rupert Cruise Port (PRCP) has celebrated the launch of its 2023 cruise season with a call from Carnival Miracle, which has a two-week itinerary around Alaska. Operated by the world’s biggest cruise port operator, Global Ports Holding, PRCP presented the ship’s captain with a plaque and received it in return, while offering an expanded range of shore excursions for the passengers. PRCP has also launched a ShoreX Hub, enabling cruise ship ShoreX teams to organise last-minute tours for the ship’s passengers.
Kevin D’Costa, general manager of Prince Rupert Cruise Port, praised the support offered by the wider community and said it aimed to help promote the area: “It was all about supporting and promoting this fantastic travel destination. The Great Bear Rainforest is an incredibly special corner of the world and Prince Rupert is at the heart of it.” Local Hereditary Chief Alex Campbell said: “We look forward to going ahead and welcoming a diverse range of people to experience Prince Rupert, speak to them and teach them about the area.”
Finally, President and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority, Shaun Stevenson said: “Global Ports Holding is well positioned to promote cruise tourism in the region, fulfilling Prince Rupert’s vision to develop a thriving cruise sector as a world-class destination, with significant economic benefits for the local community and surrounding region. Kudos to GPH and all of our community partners and businesses for the steps they have taken to realise this vision by enhancing the Prince Rupert cruise-goer experience with new offerings. We look forward to continuing to work with all stakeholders to ensure another successful cruise season.”
