Cruise Arrivals at Port Charlottetown Cancelled Until Saturday, October 1st, 2022
Charlottetown, PE – Due to the severe impact left behind by Hurricane Fiona, Port Charlottetown has announced that all cruise arrivals will be cancelled until the end of the day, Friday, September 30th. The decision was made with the support of the Port’s tourism partners.
“As PEI’s major marine gateway, our first priority is to work alongside our stakeholders and community members to address the aftermath of this historic storm,” said Mike Cochrane, Chief Executive Officer of the Charlottetown Harbour Authority. “Our focus will be on clean-up, safety measures, and making sure our port is readily available for any emergency efforts needed to restore our beautiful island.”
The Port of Charlottetown will continue to assess the situation throughout the week, as more information becomes available from across the Island and tourism operators.
“Safety remains our top priority, and we are very mindful of Hurricane Fiona’s impact on our Island,” said Cochrane. We look forward to resuming cruise arrivals when it is safe to do so and once again welcoming visitors to our premier destination.”
