PRINT AND DISPLAY this WELCOME sign for the May 4th cruise ship plus special hours and tours

Cat Ryan Submits-

Hi Joey,

Here are the Welcome signs that we are asking Gloucester and area stores, attractions and residents to print and post in their windows to welcome the Veendam cruise ship to Gloucester this Sunday, May 4th. The City of Gloucester and the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce are working with Cruiseport on the preparations. Have a look at the list of fun things going on!

Many local businesses and organizations are expanding their hours –or coming in on their day off– just to engender a special welcome.

Let’s remember to thank and support our local establishments! Residents can shop, tour, and eat & drink, too…

Quick facts:

Vessel Name: Veendam

When to open: by 10AM – 4PM (The first passengers will be coming ashore at around 9;30 and reaching downtown Gloucester by about 10AM.)

Passenger count: 2500

Crew count: 845

*If you have any brochures to display for a welcome table, please drop them off to the Chamber by Friday and they will be sure to get them to Cruiseport for Sunday morning.

Some of the special tours and programs being offered:

City Hall will be open from 10AM – 4PM for self-guided tours featuring the WPA-era murals and Committee for the Arts exhibition signage. Extra special bonus: there will be guided tours of the tower (passengers can see their vessel and an indelible view) thanks to the Restoration Commission!
