[quote=“orangetang”]So much for the Cow Bay tourist attractions… How stupid was that? Sounds like this same ship will be stopping here on a weekly basis, so it’s not a huge loss.
Did you get any good night shots Hoshq? I was going to setup a tripod at the end of Graham, but everyone and their dog was already there.[/quote]
Well from what I saw today, the town did a pretty good job of accomadating all the people that came off the ship. There were busses taking people all over the place including the Cannery Museum, taxi’s taking people on tours, everyday Average Joe’s mingling with the tourists, and the town just generally being happy.
I don’t agree that the cruise ships will be a huge surge to Rupert’s economy, but it will be a nice change from the bus tours, train, and ferry folk that we usually get every summer.
Plus… it looks freakin cool seeing a ship like that come into the harbour.
