Victoria’s first cruise ship of 2013 Holland America’s Zaandam arrived just before 5pm at Ogden Point this afternoon.  The ship was a few hours late into port as it was delayed by bad weather.

The first cruise ship visit is a short one with the vessel departing later this evening at 10 PM.

The next cruise ship arriving will be the Crystal Symphony on April 30 for a day long stop. Victoria is expecting visits from 211 cruise ships this year. The last ship will dock on September 29.
