2011 to be a bumper year for cruise ship visits 

Prestige Cruise Holdings booked San Francisco berths for seven cruise ship visits in 2011, according the Port of San Francisco.

Cruise ship visits are valuable for San Francisco’s economy because they bring cash-spending tourists and provide employment opportunities for San Francisco’s maritime professionals.

Disney Cruise Line recently announced that it would visit San Francisco in 2011 for the first time and Crystal Cruises agreed to make 10 homeport calls to San Francisco in 2011.

Prestige Cruise Holdings operates Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Oceania Cruises.

Regent scheduled visits in 2011 by the cruise ships Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Navigator, according to Port spokeswoman Renee Martin.

Oceania, which has never before visited San Francisco, booked five visits by the cruise ships Marina and Regatta, according to Martin.

“2011 is shaping up to be a good year for cruising at San Francisco,” Martin said in a statement.

The Port is working on a $40 million project to build a new cruise terminal at Pier 27, which is currently used for limousine and other vehicle parking.
