Muskegon could attract more cruise ships for the 2018, 2019 seasons

MUSKEGON, MI – The Port of Muskegon could be a port-of-call for more cruise ships in 2019.

Cruise companies are “seriously planning” stops at Great Lakes ports in 2019, and Muskegon is a prime port, said Cindy Larsen, president of the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce.

Larsen recently attended the Seatrade Cruise Global, which brings together cruise lines, ports, ship builders, security experts, service providers and more each year for a massive conference in Florida at the beginning of March.

“We were talking with companies who are either planning to expand to the Great Lakes or considering the Great Lakes in their expansion plans,” she said.
