#PrinceRupert's cruise season has officially begun with the maiden call of Ruby Princess!

The ship's Captain Aldo Traverso came ashore for a special presentation outside Northland Cruise Terminal, where he was received by Sm’ooygit Gitxoon (Hereditary Chief Alex Campbell), who welcomed all those aboard Ruby Princess to the traditional territory of the Ts’msyen people.

The Port of Prince Rupert's Harbour Master Brent Baxter and Prince Rupert City Councillor Reid Skelton-Morven greeted Captain Traverso and acknowledged the significance of Ruby Princess' arrival. Not only is it the first cruise ship to call on the Port since 2019, but it's also the first @PrincessCruises vessel to include Prince Rupert on its regular Alaska cruise itinerary.

Through the season, Ruby Princess is expected to bring upwards of 45,000 visitors to the Port of Prince Rupert, providing a major boost to the local tourism industry.

Congratulations to the recipients of the Green Wave Award!

PRPA's Green Wave Program offers financial incentives to vessel owners who employ technology to reduce GHG emissions and underwater noise on their ships. In 2021, there were 163 vessel calls at the Port of Prince Rupert that met the program's strict criteria and received the greatest savings.

28 of those calls qualified through the RightShip GHG Rating, a method developed by the world’s leader in maritime environmental assessment, which scores vessels on their relative efficiency. As a result, approximately 3,190 tonnes of GHG emissions were avoided, which is equivalent to removing 677 passenger vehicles from the road for a year.

We're excited to announce the Port of #PrinceRupert's 2022 cruise vessel schedule. Between May and September we anticipate 26 vessel calls, with more than 14,000 passengers visiting our Port.

PRPA, alongside cruise operators, the Association of Canadian Port Authorities, the Government of Canada, and a variety of stakeholders have worked together to ensure the safe resumption of cruise activity at all Canadian ports. The industry has made this possible by committing to a comprehensive set of enhanced safety protocols both aboard cruise vessels and throughout the ship-to-shore passenger experience; these measures specifically include vaccination mandates for crews and passengers, enhanced hygiene practices, and passenger screening and testing requirements based on the best available science. With these measures in effect, the local tourism industry can safely take a leap towards recovery.

“Cruise has historically played a pivotal role in the local economy and it is our hope that the 2022 summer season marks the return of a vibrant local tourism sector, with the opportunity to increase its strength in the future,” said Shaun Stevenson, President and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority.

THE PRINCE RUPERT ADVANTAGE

Shortest Pacific Route

The Port of Prince Rupert is North America’s closest port to Asia by up to three days sailing—it’s 36 hours closer to Shanghai than Vancouver and over 68 hours closer than Los Angeles.

Safe Access to Shipping Lanes

Major marine risks are greatly mitigated by the ideal natural features of our harbour. The Port of Prince Rupert has the deepest harbour in North America, is ice-free year round, and is able to accommodate the largest vessels in the shipping trade.

Deepest Harbour in North America

Our deep, wide, and protected approaches enjoy a short, direct access to and from Pacific shipping lanes and oers ample room for anchorages. That’s why our pilot time is 2-6 hours less than other major Northwest ports.
