Sarah Rumley, Executive Director of Atlantic Canada Cruise Association (ACCA), and Natalie Allaby, Director of Cruise Excellence at Port Saint John, were joined by colleagues from Cruise Canada New England, Cruise the Saint Lawrence, Port de Montreal, and Port de Quebec in Hamburg, Germany this week for the prestigious Seatrade Cruise Awards.
ACCA is thrilled to announce that Port Saint John was a finalist in the category of “Port of the Year”, being one of the top 3 cruise ports in the world. This recognition celebrates a commitment to cruise excellence at Port Saint John and its remarkable achievements over the past year.
Natalie Allaby expressed her excitement, saying, “Being recognized as one of the top 3 cruise ports in the world is a tremendous honour for Port Saint John. It reflects the dedication and hard work of our entire team, as well as our commitment to providing a world-class experience to cruise passengers.”
Port Saint John has been focused on enhancing the cruise passenger experience through a series of innovative projects this past year. Projects include the acclaimed AREA 506 Waterfront Container Village, Cruise Ship Crew Lounge, and a new Welcome Program within the terminals. These initiatives have not only elevated the overall passenger experience but have also demonstrated a proactive approach at Port Saint John to ensuring the growth of the cruise industry in Atlantic Canada.
The Seatrade Cruise Awards represent a global platform for recognizing excellence in the cruise industry. The success of Port Saint John is a testament to the collaborative efforts between ports, tourism, cruise ship interests, and governmental bodies, as championed by the Atlantic Canada Cruise Association.
This achievement celebrates the hard work done by Port Saint John and reflects Atlantic Canada’s commitment to becoming a world-class cruise destination.
Natalie Allaby will be speaking later today as a panelist during a Seatrade Europe conference about nurturing crew wellbeing ashore in ports and destinations, exploring the power of crew-focused initiatives, acknowledging that crew members are some of the biggest advocates for destinations on board.
