Cruising along

Salem steps up plans for large ships to berth at pier


In fact, a cruising vessel with Blount Small Ship Adventures is scheduled to stop here later this month.

Two years ago, Driscoll and others flew to Seattle to talk to a large cruise line about coming to Salem. As of now, no visits have been scheduled, but talks are ongoing.

“We’re actually in discussions with (companies) in the cruise industry who see this as a viable port,” the mayor said. “I feel very confident we’re going to have cruise ships here based on the discussions we’ve had.”
