Article-Halifax reports strong recovery year for cruising

Oceania Cruises' Insignia called Nov. 5, wrapping the Halifax cruise season
The Port of Halifax called 2022 a 'strong rebuilding year for the cruise industry.'

The season, which stretched from April 26 to Nov. 5, handled 234,000 passengers on 148 ship calls, 15 of them inaugural visits.

'We would like to recognize the efforts of our partners, stakeholders and their staff who have worked hard to rebuild the cruise industry here in Atlantic Canada,' said Capt. Allan Gray, president and CEO, Halifax Port Authority. 'Navigating the return of tourism to the region would not have been possible without the dedication of tourism agencies, restaurant staff and owners, shopkeepers and destination providers.'

Next year 180 cruise calls are projected.
