QUÉBEC CITY TAKES HOME A 3RD STRAIGHT ANNUAL CRUISERS’ CHOICE AWARD FOR BEST CRUISE DESTINATION, U.S. & CANADA

07/17/2019

Québec City, July 17, 2019. Québec City adds a third straight annual Cruisers’ Choice Destination Award to its trophy case as Cruise Critic’s best cruise destination in the United States and Canada.

Results from the 2018 cruise ship season have once again put Québec City in the driver’s seat as Cruise Critic’s best cruise destination in the U.S. & Canada region. That irresistible charm and Gallic grace—internationally recognized with its designation of UNESCO World Heritage Site—have singled it out as a marquee destination on the Canada–New England route.

“It’s a tremendous honour to be named best destination by all those thousands of cruise passengers visiting our beautiful city, and for the third year in a row! I am so proud to think of the way all the actors in this community have joined forces and worked so hard to make us a must-see port of call” said Mario Girard, CEO of the Port of Québec.

“Receiving this award—for the third year in a row—tells us that all our hard work is paying off, and to think it comes barely a week after being selected best destination in Canada by the readers of Travel + Leisure. We already knew that Québec City area was a fabulous destination both for cruise passengers and tourists, but this honour from Cruise Critic makes it unanimous.”said Québec City Tourism communications and marketing director Éric Bilodeau.

cruisecritic.com, cruise passengers’ go-to authority

Cruise Critic is the world’s leading cruise review site and hosts the world’s largest cruise community. More than six million people visit cruisecritic.com each month, generating more than 350,000 cruise reviews each season. The seventh annual Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards honours cruise passengers’ favourite destinations based exclusively on the latest ratings awarded by passengers.

The Port of Québec’s 2019 cruise ship season

Following up on its record 2018 season with its 230,940 passengers (a 15% increase over 2017), the Port of Québec launched the current season in May 2019 with the arrival of Hurtigruten Cruise Lines’ MS Fram on its maiden call at Québec City. By season’s end 156 ships representing 26 cruise lines will have stopped at the Port, nine of them for the first time.
