Local business can look forward to more cruise ships in Wilmington

Local businesses will get another boost, with four cruise ships docking in Wilmington. Three American Cruise Line ships will arrive in May; the first on Sunday. A fourth ship from American Canadian Caribbean Line will arrive in June.

These small luxury cruise ships carry around one-hundred passengers and will dock along downtown Wilmington’s riverfront near the visitor information booth.

A cruise line study estimates that each passenger spends an average of $123 per US port-of-call visit.
