Busy Week for Norfolk’s Cruise Program


Norfolk welcomed thousands of visitors Wednesday afternoon. The 951-foot-long Caribbean Princess docked along the Norfolk waterfront with more than 3,000 passengers on board.

“This is definitely among the largest ships we’ve seen in Norfolk,” said Nauticus Executive Director Stephen E. Kirkland.

It’s been a busy week at the cruise terminals. The city was treated to two ships in one day on Halloween.

“This is a real testament to all the amenities, attractions and excursions our region has to offer these cruise line guests, ” added Kirkland. “We’re delighted so many visitors will have the chance to experience Norfolk.”

The MS Regatta was docked at the Decker Half Moone Center for an overnight stopover and the Seven Seas Mariner, also in town for a stopover, was docked at Lambert’s Point.
