Port Specifications - Saint John

Voted as one of the top three transit ports in the world by Seatrade Inside in 2009, Saint John is ideally suited to handle all sizes of cruise vessels. The new Marco Polo Cruise Terminal was purpose-built and greatly enhances the experience for cruise guests visiting the Bay of Fundy. In fact, Saint John has four cruise ship berths which are within five minutes walking distance to the uptown area. Plus there's a market right on the dock.
