Cruise traffic trickles back to New England: Hoping for 'a pivot toward more domestic cruises'

7 mins read


Norwegian Cruise Line also introduced something noteworthy back in 2006 when Norwegian Pearl made its debut.

Cruising has been back in swing since last year but a couple of states in New England are only now starting to see traffic – and some are hoping to see more ships sail their way this season. 

“We are thrilled to see cruises return to New England and frankly everywhere where cruises operate,” Laziza Lambert, spokesperson for Cruise Lines International Association, a leading trade organization for the industry, told USA TODAY. 

In 2019, 251,000 passengers from North America went on a cruise that traversed through Canada and New England, according to Lambert. Canada and New England are treated as a “single destination region,” Chris Mastrippolito, director of global research, told USA TODAY.
