The Best Bienvenue in the world
In 2013, Cruise the Saint Lawrence and member ports of call adopted a Greeting Policy, our aim being to ensure that we achieve our vision of becoming the destination that provides the ‘Best Welcome in the World’. This policy will be implemented over the coming years with a view to consistently enhancing passenger and crew experience. Member ports of call are therefore hard at work fine-tuning greeting infrastructure, honing customer service and innovating in the matter of visitor greeting operations. Accreditation for the 9 ports of call is anticipated for 2016.

Baie-Comeau port of call
The Baie-Comeau region's landscape has been shaped by glacial retreats and extraordinary and unusual natural phenomena such as a meteorite, which caused the immense Manicouagan crater.
Baie-Comeau - Big country. Big hearts.
Natural resources fueled the industrialization of modern-day Québec, spurring the development of its vast territory through logging, the rise of the lumber and paper industry, and the harnessing of the mighty Manicouagan and Outardes rivers. This hydroelectrical engineering paved the way for a world-class aluminum smelter in Baie-Comeau, a company town, where these enormous facilities fit right in in a part of the world where everything is larger than life.
