St. Lawrence Cruise Lines celebrates successful cruise season

KINGSTON — St. Lawrence Cruise Clines’ 2021 cruise season was a huge success, garnering rave reviews from passengers who sailed aboard the iconic CANADIAN EMPRESS.

The cruise line confirmed no incidences of COVID-19 this season on its overnight cruises on the St. Lawrence and Ottawa rivers. All passengers and crew were required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, as well as be tested prior to boarding the vessel. Additional safety measures like physical distancing, masking and a ship-wide disinfectant regime were also implemented.

The season went so well that 93% of passengers indicated a willingness to cruise with the company again.

“We believe that the safe and successful completion of our 2021 season proves that we can deliver a fulfilling cruise vacation with the highest levels of hospitality, while maintaining equally high standards of COVID-19 safety measures for everyone onboard,” said Jason Clark, President of St. Lawrence Cruise Lines.

“Despite the challenges that we have all faced in the last year, it was wonderful to recognize the longevity of our company and the ongoing contributions to our success from passengers and crew, both past and present,” he added.

Clark also noted that one of the highlights of the season was the company’s 40th Anniversary Celebration of the christening of the CANADIAN EMPRESS in 1981.
