Oct 25 2012
Holland America's Zaandam pulls into Ogden Point this morning, marking the end of Victoria's cruise ship season. The 777-footlong Zaandam is expected to be docked from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and then leave for San Diego. The season started on April 17 when the 820-foot-long Crystal Serenity arrived. There were 229 ship visits this year, estimated to have carried more than 475,000 passengers and 200,000 crew members. Final figures will be revealed by the Greater Victoria Harbour this morning.
