You must have a ton of these by now, but I did post this one on my twitter, saying if you didn’t go to Gloucester today, this is what you missed!  I had a great day in Gtown.  Went to Rocky Neck and saw EJ, bought olive oil and balsamic vinegar from Cape Ann Olive Oil Co., had lunch at Lobstaland.  It is sooo wonderful to play tourist in the hometown.  How much did these ocean travelers pay to get to Gloucester?  Genie

Holland America Cruise Ship Eurodam Coming to Cruiseport Sunday, September 16

Peter Webber writes-

Good day. I am writing today to remind everyone that the next major cruise ship of the season will be arriving in Gloucester Harbor on this coming Sunday, September 16: Holland America’s cruise ship the ms Eurodam, with a capacity of 2104 passengers. Once again the Chamber will be working together with the city of Gloucester’s volunteer welcoming committee and CATA to welcome and guide Eurodam’s passengers as they disembark and arrive at the Cruiseport terminal. The first tenders carrying passengers from the ship are expected to arrive at Cruiseport at approximately 9:00 am Sunday.  Many will board motor coaches for planned excursions to various locations, while many others will be guided to CATA trolleys and buses for transportation to downtown Gloucester and Rockport. 

Please note the attached “Welcome Eurodam Passengers” flyer, which we encourage you to print and post at your place of business to help give the Eurodam passengers a hearty Cape Ann welcome.  I have also attached a flyer featuring several upcoming Chamber and community events scheduled for September and October, including next Tuesday’s (September 18) sales seminar with author Marc Wayshak at the Elks at Bass Rocks, beginning with check-in at 7:30 am.  Please contact the Chamber today to reserve your place.  Best regards. Peter

Welcome Eurodam Passengers

Ahoy Gloucester!  The Holland America Eurodam is arriving tomorrow morning, Tuesday October 18th.  The first passengers are anticipated to arrive onshore at Cruiseport between 7:30 am – 8:00 am.  There will be approximately 2,000 passengers coming to our shores.  Let’s give them a warm Gloucester welcome.

FOB Cynthia Hill Takes Some Pics of Gloucester FROM The Seven Seas Navigator Cruise Ship

By now we’ve seen many fantastic cruise ship pictures of the boats but here’s what the passengers of these cruise ships see when they enter Gloucester.

Cynthia writes-

This is a wonderful ship, and what I think is the best cruise line afloat. Great fares – not inexpensive but completely inclusive – air, liquor, shore excursions, and gratuities! May seem high but when you look at what you spend on other lines with the nickel and diming that happens you actually save money. The only extra charges are for Canyon Ranch Spa Afloat….We’re not talking Carnival here, Regent is certainly high-end, but that said – it consistently offers the very best bang for the buck….did I mention all cabins are suites with walk in closets, a tub and shower in the bath, and almost all have balconies.

Thanks for letting me brag about this cool company!


MS Fram visits Gloucester October 8, 2009

The MS Fram was in port yesterday.  I scooted down there to get some pics for you guys.  My ultimate goal was to get aboard by flashing my Good Morning Gloucester Press Badge and asking the Captain for a tour of the Bridge so I could videotape it for y’all but security was tighter than a a bull’s ass come fly season.  They were stopping everyone who wanted to get past the barricades at Cruiseport, even the people that worked there.

Luckily I know some folks that got me past the velvet rope and  got some shots for you.  Not to mention FOB Cynthia Hill who got us some shots aboard the boat.
