Quickly becoming a destination on Canada/New England itineraries, the port, according to Magali Vézina, international cruise coordinator, is expecting 30,000 cruise passengers and 26 ship calls this year.

“It is also the first year that we will have the privilege of hosting two ships that remain at port overnight,” Vézina  said. “Not only will the visitors experience our unique hosting and many activities, but they will also enjoy Saguenay’s night life and its people.”
