As part of the newly opened AREA 506 Waterfront Container Village development, the Crew Lounge is close to the cruise ship berths and is made out of the three recycled 40ft shipping containers.
'We’re thrilled to be able to offer this special new space to visiting cruise ship crew members. We know they’re eager to relax and connect with loved ones when on shore leave. We think we’ve created a really welcoming and laid-back environment for them to enjoy,' says Natalie Allaby, cruise development manager at Port Saint John.
Exclusive for cruise ship crew
The crew lounge space, located adjacent to the Marco Polo Cruise Terminal, is private and exclusive for cruise ship crew. It offers a rooftop patio overlooking the harbour, two levels of comfortable seating, tables equipped with device charging stations, dedicated high-speed free Wi-Fi, and air conditioning.
'The investment was an easy decision for the Port while we aim to broadly enhance and elevate the passenger experience at Port Saint John,' says Allaby. 'Happy crew means great service, and great service means happy passengers. This investment just made sense for many reasons.'
