This summer, the Thunder Bay port will host 15 cruise ship arrivals from three cruise lines and four different vessels, and the numbers are expected to grow in 2024.
“The Viking Qantas this year we’ll be joined by its new sister ship the Viking Polaris which is an identical twin to the Atlantis,” said Paul Pepe, manager of Tourism Thunder Bay. “The Qantas will be making three turnaround port calls here and two day-stops. Then the Polaris will be making six day-stops here in the city.”
He added the Hanseatic Inspiration with the German Hapag Lloyd cruise line is no stranger to Thunder Bay and will be making two day-stops here this summer. American Queen Voyages will also be returning with the Ocean Navigator, which was here last year twice.
The Le Champlain, which is part of the Ponant fleet, will arrive in Thunder Bay in September of next year, making it one of the increasing numbers of cruise lines taking a growing interest in the Great Lakes.
