The Port of Vancouver anticipates a record 1.27 million cruise passengers in 2024, thanks to its popularity as a launch point for Alaska cruises. With 329 ship visits scheduled between March and October, including five ships making their first appearance, the port is set to continue its growth. Initiatives like shore power usage and the ECHO Program aim to enhance sustainability and protect marine life. The port’s strategic location offers unique cruise routes through the Inside Passage, contributing significantly to the local economy and the broader cruise market’s recovery post-pandemic.
