Our first cruise ship into Victoria BC (Vancouver Island) at Ogden Point for the Alaska 2014 season will be the Holland America Line : ms Zaandam on May 1, 2014 and this same ship will be the last ship in to close our season on October 6, 2014.
Total ship visits will be 208 for 2014, subject to change and weather.
Expected passengers will be 450,000 plus (estimate) plus crew 🙂

This week it was announced that a company in responding to ways to shuttle cruise passengers to the Victoria downtown including wheelchair passengers has proposed a Gondola system, much like used for skiing or across rivers.
The intent is to move passengers from Ogden Point to downtown Victoria in about five minutes following a route over two streets just above tree top level in a covered unit ( 8 passengers). Cost might be around $10 Cdn return which is on par with current shuttle costs.
This is in response to the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority for ways to reduce traffic, noise, pollution during the cruise season and to give passengers and crew more options of travelling back and forth to the city centre.
