Another cruise line has confirmed that it will be calling on Prince Rupert in 2013.

Oceana Cruise confirmed that its 684 passenger Oceana Regatta will call on Prince Rupert four times during the summer of 2013 following a visit to the city last summer. It also comes following the rollout of various cruise related initiatives during the 2011 season that included street performers, an enhanced ambassador program and activities like a touch tank and a fishing derby for kids near the Atlin Terminal building.

“The return of the Oceana Regatta demonstrates the success of our 2011 community initiatives and our ongoing cruise developments,” said Shaun Stevenson, Vice-President of Trade Development and Public Affairs for the Prince Rupert Port Authority.

“By developing guest experiences that amplify unique qualities of Prince Rupert and the Skeena region, we stand out in the crowded landscape of Alaskan cruises,” added Andrew Hamilton, Director of Business Development for the Prince Rupert Port Authority.

Oceana Cruises is owned by the same corporate parent as Regent Seven Seas Cruises, whose vessel Seven Seas Navigator is due to call in Prince Rupert this summer.

The announcement comes after Silversea Cruises made its decision to call on Prince Rupert over the course of a month next summer.
