On that day, three cruise ships will be in port. Holland America's Zuiderdam, will berth at the south side of the B Street Pier with 2,029 passengers. The Holland America Westerdam will berth at the north side of the B Street Pier, with about 1,658 passengers. Celebrity Cruises' Infinity will berth at the north side of the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier with about 2,170 passengers. All three ships will arrive between 6 a.m. and 6:30 a.m.
Several hundred passengers from the Zuiderdam and Westerdam will begin disembarking the vessels between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. The ships will also have passengers embarking throughout the day. Additionally, several trucks are expected to deliver supplies for restocking.
The Infinity will be berthed at the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier. This will be a visitation stop for the ship and there will be no passengers embarking or disembarking in San Diego.
The Port of San Diego is in the midst of a project that will make several improvements to the B Street Cruise Ship Terminal. The two largest components include a roof replacement and installation of a new canopy on the building's south side.
Because of this construction activity, some ships scheduled to berth at B Street will be berthed at Broadway Pier. On May 2 and 3, the MV Explorer, used by the Semester at Sea program, will be berthed there. Holland America's Statendam will be berthed there on May 13.
About the Port:
The Port of San Diego is the fourth largest of the 11 ports in California. It was created by the state legislature in 1962. Since then, it has invested millions of dollars in public improvements in its five member cities – Chula Vista, Coronado, Imperial Beach, National City and San Diego.
The Port oversees two maritime cargo terminals, two cruise ship terminals, 17 public parks, the Harbor Police Department, and the leases of more than 600 tenant and sub tenant businesses around San Diego Bay.
