More than 120 cruise vessels visited the Port of Halifax this season, bringing over 240,000 passengers to our region.

Annually, cruise accounts for about eight per cent of all tourism traffic in Nova Scotia, contributing approximately $50 million in economic impact.

"It has been another tremendous season for cruise in Halifax," said Halifax Port Authority Manager of Cruise Development, Cathy McGrail. "We've maintained visitor totals well over 200,000 for four years running, which is a tremendous accomplishment and a boon for the city and province."
