Nunavut set to see another busy cruise ship season

Nunavut communities should expect the usual influx of summer visitors arriving by ship this season, Nunatsiaq News reports. 

The Department of Economic Development and Transportation announced in a news release on the first day of summer, on Friday, June 21, that the cruise ship season is approaching.

The department has posted an online database showing which communities the cruise ships will be visiting and on what dates.

According to the news release, this information will be updated frequently.

Pond Inlet will receive by far the largest number of cruise ships this year—17—compared with Cambridge Bay’s five, Iqaluit’s four and Arctic Bay’s two.
