More than 800,000 passengers passed through Port Metro Vancouver as yet another successful cruise season comes to a close.

Earlier this year Port Metro Vancouver completed improvements to the Canada Place cruise terminal, with more escalators and automated passport control kiosks.

Manager of cruise services, Carmen Ortega, says it’s not expected to slow down.

” We’re expecting another strong season next year, and a passenger forecast slightly higher than this year.”

Port Metro Vancouver is Canada’s largest port and the third largest in North America.
