Cruise ship visits are few and far between

Nanaimo’s stores and restaurants are still waiting on the 30 large vessels that have been promised to dock each year.

To the Editor,

Another cruise ship has come to Nanaimo, albeit the last of only two this year. And it’s been another chance for port staff to champion how much darn mega-money passengers will apparently have dropped here to apparently boost the local economy.

Nanaimo’s stores and restaurants are still waiting on the 30 large vessels that have been promised to dock each year at the $26-million facility.
