The Best Bienvenue in the world
In 2013, Cruise the Saint Lawrence and member ports of call adopted a Greeting Policy, our aim being to ensure that we achieve our vision of becoming the destination that provides the ‘Best Welcome in the World’. This policy will be implemented over the coming years with a view to consistently enhancing passenger and crew experience. Member ports of call are therefore hard at work fine-tuning greeting infrastructure, honing customer service and innovating in the matter of visitor greeting operations. Accreditation for the 9 ports of call is anticipated for 2016.
