Bienvenue Cruise Passengers Contest
Rimouski, 11 May 2015 — It is with immense pleasure that Cruise the Saint Lawrence invites Québecers from across the province to take part in our Bienvenue Cruise Passengers Contest, and to get out and welcome cruise passengers and crew when they step ashore in your region. This year, cruise ships will make some 350 stopovers at one of the 9 international cruise ports along the Saint Lawrence during the period between May and November. In total, over 275 000 cruise passengers and 120 000 crew members will visit Destination Saint Lawrence ports of call.
The Bienvenue Cruise Passengers Contest invites residents to share their visions of a day in port, as soon through the lens of their cameras, and to capture the thrill and exhilaration experienced when cruise ships call in at one of the following nine locations: Montréal, Trois-Rivières, Québec, Saguenay, Baie-Comeau, Sept-Îles, Havre-Saint-Pierre, Gaspésie and the Îles de la Madeleine.
