Juneau expects to see the most cruise ship passengers of the season on Tuesday.
Juneau Convention and Visitor’s Bureau president Lorene Palmer says that’s when Juneau will have the most cruise passenger arrivals this summer.
The jump in numbers comes because the Seven Seas Navigator is on its repositioning cruise and will arrive Tuesday instead of its normal Saturday schedule.
Palmer says the city will be looking at a total capacity of 13,224. That number is based on the notion that every ship is sold out with at least two people in every cabin.
Palmer says the actual figures won’t be known until the season statistics are done.
