Canadian Cruise Port opens a new lounge for crew members

The cruise ship destination of Port Saint John, New Brunswick in Atlantic Canada has a brand new area just for crew members when their ship enters port.

As part of the newly opened AREA 506 Waterfront Container Village development, the Crew Lounge is the perfect place for crew to relax, unwind and socialize with their friends and family back home. Constructed from three recycled 40-foot shipping containers, the hall is a testament to the community’s welcoming spirit.

“We are delighted to be able to offer this special new space to cruise ship crew members.” We know they’re eager to relax and bond with loved ones when they hit the beach. We think we’ve created a really pleasant and relaxed environment for them to enjoy,” says Natalie Alabi, Cruise Development Manager at Port Saint John.

The lounge, located next to the Marco Polo cruise terminal, is private and exclusively for cruise ship crew. It features a rooftop terrace with harbor views, two levels of comfortable seating, tables with charging stations, dedicated high-speed free WiFi and air conditioning.

“The investment was an easy decision for the Port, as we want to greatly enhance and enhance the passenger experience at Port St. John,” says Allaby. “A happy crew means great service, and great service means happy passengers.” This investment made sense for many reasons.”

Cruises coming to Port Saint John this September and October include Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, among others.
