Bar Harbor Votes to Stay in the Cruise Business

Voters in Bar Harbor (Maine) on Tuesday voted for a measure that would help to keep the city as a port of call for cruise lines (and possibly expand its capacity) and against another measure that would limit the number of cruise passengers visiting the city.

The measure that was approved 945-658 allows the city to rezone a former ferry terminal, and sets the stage for the city to buy it and upgrade the pier to handle large cruise ships.

The complete story appeared in the June 14 edition of Cruise News Daily.
