THE PORT OF CHOICE FOR CRUISE SHIPS
 

The Port of St. John’s is at the centre of a growing cruise ship industry and serves as a port of call for trans-Atlantic (North), Adventure Expedition, and home-porting itineraries. The port is part of the waterfront of a world-class city with an enticing mixture of urban and cultural experiences. And we are in easy driving distance of natural and geological wonders that enchant people from around the globe. 

In addition to our unrivalled location, our welcoming spirit, cultural experiences, and access to all the amenities of a modern port city ensure that every visit is pleasant, safe, and enjoyable.

The unique thrill of entering the Narrows from the rugged Atlantic, and discovering enclosed within the rocky cliffs a historic, colourful port city, never fails to impress the thousands of visitors that arrive on cruise ships each year. Once ashore, visitors are enthralled by our historically-infused streets, world-class food, friendly shops and spirited people. The Port of St. John’s is a gateway to extraordinary outdoor adventures, outstanding cultural experiences and world-class music, dining and nightlife — and with all the amenities of a modern port, it has an incredible amount to offer the cruise industry. Our pride in our city encourages us to bring the world to our doorstep and showcase our spectacular landscape and culture.

The Port of St. John’s is a major port of call for trans-Atlantic (North), Adventure Expedition, and home-porting itineraries. The St. John’s Port Authority has forged a number of alliances to increase the profile of St. John’s as an internationally-preferred cruise destination. We are a partner with Cruise Islands of the North Atlantic, a brand which markets the unique island destinations of Newfoundland and Labrador, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and the Orkney Islands. Working together, we’ve solidified the importance of North Atlantic island ports within the industry. In 2010, with the City of St. John’s as a partner, we developed Cruise St. John’s, a brand dedicated to attracting new cruise lines and passengers to our beautiful city. We’re also a partner port with Cruise Newfoundland Labrador, the provincial cruise association focused on promoting the province as a leading global cruise destination. These three alliances have helped put the port at the competitive centre of the industry.

In 2007, Newfoundland and Labrador, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and the Orkney Islands formed an alliance of unique destinations to increase the profile of the North Atlantic region and develop leading products for the cruise industry.

The St. John’s Port Authority is deeply involved with the Cruise Association of Newfoundland and Labrador in the development of the Cruise Islands of the North Atlantic brand. We also support efforts to showcase the best of our city and province to the world.

The Port of St. John’s is listed among the top experiences offered through “Cruise the Edge of North America.” This distinctive brand was launched by the Cruise Association of Newfoundland and Labrador in 2010 to promote the province’s one-of-a-kind events, activities, and attractions to the growing experiential travel market worldwide.

We support this exceptional initiative which targets the international cruise market. We are confident that we have the product and the facilities to support increased vessel and visitor activity and to position Newfoundland and Labrador as a premiere global cruise destination.
