SEPT-ÎLES, September 14, 2017 – RMS Queen Mary 2 will be berthed at Sept-Îles from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., October 2, following updates to the ship’s itinerary by Cunard Cruise Lines in response to speed limits recently brought in for the west section of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
The Port of Sept-Îles understands the exceptional challenges cruise lines are facing at the present time, and we unhesitatingly agreed to the last-minute request from our distinguished guest, whose first official visit to Sept-Îles had been announced for September 2018.
The people of Sept-Îles and all Destination Sept-Îles Nakauinanu partners will be called on more than ever to provide their habitual warm welcome to our very special visitors.
