History

The Cruise Canada New England Symposium began as an initiative of the Atlantic Canada Cruise Association (hosted and organized by Saint John, New Brunswick) in 1999. The initiative received overwhelming support of the cruise lines and with short notice, Carnival, Princess, Royal Caribbean, and the President of Premier Cruise Line attended and addressed the more than 100 participants in the one-day conference.

This initiative had such a success as the Cruise the Saint Lawrence Association announced the holding of the Cruise Canada New England Symposium 2000 in Montréal, and invited all the attendees of the industry to participate. The Cruise Canada New England Alliance afterward determined that the symposium would take place every year, in a region chosen by rotation, in May or in June.
