2008 Cruise Season Kicks Off June 2nd

Downtown merchants and restaurateurs will welcome the first of many American Cruise Line visitors June 3rd between the hours of 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM.
Vessels typically land later in the evening around 8:00 PM and tour the city the day after for a few hours. There are, however, some boats that land around 5:30 PM, allowing passengers a chance to explore downtown in the early evening hours. [VIEW SCHEDULE]
Businesses are encouraged if possible to stay open on the days and evenings that cruisers are in port.
Any business wishing to make its literature available to cruisers can contact Jessica Fernandes, Assistant Port Director, at (508) 961-3000 or www.portofnewbedford.org
