In 2017, the Port of Montreal welcomed a total of
114,518 cruise passengers and crew members, a remarkable 33.5% upswing over
the previous year.

It was a record year for the cruise industry in Montreal, both domestically and internationally. Three new cruise ships called at the Port for the first time and, as of summer 2017, cruise passengers were able to use our new terminal. No doubt about it, Montreal’s reputation as a destination of choice for cruise passengers keeps growing year after year. In June, Montreal was the site for the 2017 Cruise Canada New England Symposium, connecting major cruise lines and the cruise partner destinations of this great region.
